Today was rough… we started our day out rocking in this chair and we stayed here almost all day! If I moved she cried, if I talked she cried, if anyone else tried to hold her she cried! Days like today are HARD! but I know one day soon, I’ll be longing for them!
I’ll be wishing she’d sit and snuggle while I rocked her! She’ll be too busy playing and learning all sorts of new things! So I take a deep breath and I breathe it all in! The sweet smell of her freshly washed hair, how her mouth twitches in her sleep, how she snuggles her head deep into my chest, because thats where she feels SAFE!
I am her home base, Her security blanket. The one place she knows she can be and she will be safe and warm and loved!
Teething is HARD! It’s never hit any of my kids this early! But all the drool, the nawing on her hands, refusing to nurse and then when she finally does nawing on my nipple ☠ !! The fussing and crying and fighting sleep! My poor baby is just so darn uncomfortable and mama is the only thing that can fix it for her!
So here we sit, in our chair, surrounded by the mess from today! The toys, the clothes, the dishes, and yet all I seem to notice….
The sweet smell of her freshly washed hair, how her mouth twitches when she sleeps, how she buries her head deep into my chest and how right here and now I feel complete ❤
