Baby Day 8 - Tears of Joy

I wonder what on Earth I ever did to deserve something so wonderful.

Kyle is a wonderful, loving partner and father. Our baby is so very happy and healthy. Everything is so good.

My greatest fear is that it will one day crash; that this wonderful life is just too good to be true. I remember gazing out of my office window, feeling the same way with my career and fun condo... that things were so good and one day it would fall apart. In the end, it did end and things did change - but I found myself escorted into this fabulous life and never looked back.

Tonight is my first time alone with Kaden, while Kyle is attending a city meeting. I turned on some music before nursing and was simply overcome with tears... rocking this wonderful little being that is so content to hear my voice and feel my touch. There is just something natural about understanding what is troubling him and somehow I just know how to make it all better. I hope this continues. It makes me feel competent and confident - that I can really do this. That I was born to do this. My dream come true.

He is so sweet, napping after his little dinner.

His umbilical cord is officially healed so he can now wear little onesies and outfits. I'm hard-pressed to understand who designs these tiny outfits that are so difficult to put on the little baby. Seriously... you would think they would make it easy to put on and comfortable for the baby to wear. Alas, they must be in cohorts with the bedding designers who charge $600 for linens that are inefficient and non-effective for a crib/nursery.

I'm off to work on birth announcements... post a comment or contact me (perhaps on Facebook) if I don't have your address and you would like a little tiny birth announcement!
