reclaiming my baby-moon.

July 4, 2010 aniwaniwa

I’ve been so tired lately.  But I am not good at doing nothing. I started reading a beautiful book last week but today it lay on my pillow & I had a day of baby-moon.  Since the birth of AO I have been full steam ahead but lately my body is telling me to rest.  Today I watched AO breastfeed, I looked at the colours of her hair & stroked her soft head. We played with each others hands & I listened to her sounds. We stared in each others eyes & I watched as she fell asleep, twice so far today. We breathed together.

I have decided to do this more often & to reclaim my baby-moon that was lost in an International move.  One day here, one day there, I reckon I’m owed at least 4 weeks of peaceful days in bed with my newest baby.
