(i just found this post still marked Draft…I MUST post it now, 2 months later)
more things I want to remember about you being 19 days old.
*you have taken to stroking my side with your hand as you nurse
*you kick your feet off of the end of the bassinet. It’s kind of annoying b/c you should be sleeping, but it’s like it’s your way of telling me that you are too big ALREADY for your bed.
*your teeny, tiny little bird legs and the big shoes you wear
*how you still stretch with ALL of your might. Arms up and wide and big yawns…every stretch makes you grow though, I swear.
*you still have your Happy Hour every night before bed where you are wide awake and bright-eyed.
*you peed in your eye the other day when daddy was changing you
*your farts are like giant wet bombs. Sometimes they scare daddy so much he jumps and mommy worried he is going to drop you
*sometimes, and very rarely, I let you sleep in bed with me if it’s 4am and you are inconsolable. You lie in the “pocket” of my armpit and fall asleep in a second. Warm and cozy, protected by mommy, you know it’s okay to rest your eyes
