As usual, the last few weeks have flown by and yet I’m treasuring every moment. I find myself losing all track of time as I lay hugging, holding and smelling my sweet babe.
What I want to remember about this moment: Ashton Quinn is a very peaceful baby. He’s gentle. He’s light. He’s relaxed. He’s intense. He’s an observer. He’s a wise soul. He’s a gift.
I love how his head folds into the nook of my neck and shoulders. I love feeling his tiny breath on my face. I love the comfort we both feel when he sleeps on me. I love the little piggy sounds he makes when he’s hungry. I love his precious little fingers and toes. I love that during his alert time he gets really still and quiet, and stares so deeply into my eyes. Sometimes he scans my whole face from top to bottom as though he’s processing some special code that’s bonding us together. I love how bonded we are. I love nursing him and the milk blister on his top lip. I love that he is here and that he is home. And I love the tears that well up in my eyes every time I thank him for choosing me.
