The Beginning: Month Two
March 18, 2015
What can you say about a baby’s second month?
It was disorienting?
She was little?
Even when compared to the next smallest member of our family.
She woke up?
And captivated everyone?
It’s all true.
She is adored.
Which is exactly how it should be.
And if–somewhere in the small hours of most nights–
I’m still really tired,
I know I’ll catch up on my sleep soon.
And these days–these wonderful, glorious, exhausting, surreal, overwhelming, and perfectly imperfect days–will be behind us.
I wish these days would last forever.
