What I Wore – Little babies are little

There was this one time
when I gave birth to a baby girl
and she was so much me
that I never slept again.

River isn’t a fan of sleeping.

Three weeks in and it feels like yesterday.
She was beauty and pain and emerged here at my home
THREE WEEKS AGO?

I didn’t mean to leave
and not tell you all about the furry baby hair on her ears
that look like a wee girly elf.
But there’s the whole sleeping thing.
And she has a bit of a crying addiction.

She was awake for four hours after she was born.
She smiled during that four hours at each of us.
I look into her eyes and my tummy
does flip flops.

For the first few days we kept calling her Mabel on accident.
It was magical.

We are definitely in a survival mode right now.
But it’s teaching me to slow down.
To surrender.

To hear God whispers in the in-betweens.
Between nursing. Between diaper changes.
Between big brother kisses.

Tomorrow she gets her first style day.
{I can’t believe this isn’t a dream. Pinch.}
