Bredon is here. He is four days old. He looked at me clear-eyed this morning as I was talking to him and he smiled at me. Twice.
I am so in love.
My husband is amazing. You'd have to see to understand. There are no words. We wrapped gifts this afternoon. He is off to the post office to mail the stuff.
Piper has grown up overnight. I hold her, and she is huge compared to her brother, but her heart is the same. She is just talking more. I cry more when I am with her.
I remember her small when I hold Bredon; something in my hands knows he is not so tiny as she was. I don't feel so helpless.
We are living now, resting, eating, learning our life all over - winding down two hours earlier than before, getting to bed two hours later before we wake again. I know time passes; the sun rises and sets and brings us closer to dates we've marked on the calendar. I wait for my heart to wake, putting things away as buried treasure, accepting the moments I own. I have enough for today.
I have so much...
This post also linked at Holy Experience, sharing with the Gratitude Community in listing my own One Thousand Gifts. I will number today's when I find time again.
