I lowered your feet in and like they always do, your eyes widened at the magic of water. You noticed the floating herbs and pawed at them.
You breastfed while your legs kicked and floated in the water. I held you and thanked you for joining us in this world.
I thanked you for being you.
I thanked you for this depth of love and for helping me understand that love is a state of being.
As you finished feeding, I thanked my body for all the work, the giving and the transformation. At that point you laid your head on my belly and closed your eyes for a moment of pause - as if you were thanking it too. I'm so honoured to be the one you chose to nourish you.
