Baby feet. Tiny toes.
Floppy, snuggly, warmth of her little body on mine.
The smell of new life.
Peaceful slumber in my arms.
Little smiles, not fully practiced, but there.
Big baby eyes trying to take in the world.
Velvety soft cheeks, and yummy neck--perfect for kissing.
Learning to change the new and improved cloth diapers.
Remembering how to calm the fussies.
(It's been almost a decade since this mama rocked a newborn.)
She is growing too fast, so I'm grabbing this tiny baby loveliness while I can.
I will love her her entire life, yet I treasure these moments.
I know too well how quickly they are gone.
I could let her little self sleep on me forever.
I love every part of being an aunt to this sweet girl.
You make me happy.
