I like so many other mama's want time to stop. I want you to stay a newborn forever. I love smelling your newborn smell and kissing on the softest skin there ever was. Every time you yawn or stretch out your tiny fingers I'm in awe of what a miracle you are. Your little features are so delicate and feminine and those eyes. They're like big blueberries that I could stare at forever.
I'm loving getting to know you. The way you want to be swaddled and held close to our chest or your need for things to get quite after your brother and sister have shown you lots of attention. I already know you have a gentle sweet spirit. Your eyes follow your daddy when he moves around the room. His singing soothes you. You love to be rocked and hate hiccups.
You gave us your first real smile the other day and now are smiling all the time. You sleep so well giving me almost five stretches of sleep a night, sometimes more. It's such a gift from the Lord.
Amelia, I love you so much. These last four weeks with you have renewed and strengthened my heart as a mother. I'm in love with being a mama and having the privilege to care for you and your siblings. Thank you for giving that to me.
