One of the most exquisite sounds in the world: my baby breathing on my chest, snuggled up inside a wrap.
Every day I have with my little man is precious. I didn’t realize how much until I saw the end of my maternity leave, just around the corner.
Motherhood surprised me. From piercing baby cries to nursing on demand, it’s an exquisite experience. After stressful weeks obsessing over sleep and weight, now I am enjoying all the ways he is growing and developing. His smile makes my heart skip. His preppy baby suits charm the rest of the world. Yes, he was the best dressed baby at our Buddha Baby Yoga class at Nature’s Whisper.
We went thru two sweater vests this week.
Sometimes life just slips in through a back door
And carves out a person and makes you believe it’s all true
And now I’ve got you
“Rest your head close to my heart….
Never to part.
Baby of mine.”
Our pack has grown. I love this baby boy with all my heart. I had no idea how much he would change my life. I felt my heart burst when I first felt him on my chest, crying for comfort.
I spent nine months avoiding booze, sushi and eggs benedict. Betabrand yoga pants replaced my office slacks. Morning walks replaced my morning runs. I shared ultrasound details with expecting moms at prenatal yoga at Pilgrimage of the Heart.
My life outside of the newsroom has become a merry-go-round of nursing, dirty diapers and precious naps. I love watching our baby sleep with a dreamy smile. I adore wearing him close to my heart in a wrap. It’s one of his favorite spots for a nap.
