Five weeks, two days

June 20, 2009

I am loving motherhood.


Maggie is precious, and I feel so blessed to be her mother. I love that my voice is one she strains to hear – that my body is giving her the sustenance she needs to develop those delicious chub rolls – that my chest is her “safe place,” where she can snuggle down and feel safe and secure. I love, too, that I have given Matt this most amazing, marvelous person as a daughter.


She’s changing and growing every day. When she looks at me now, her eyes really register my presence. She smiles, and it’s not just because she has gas! When she nurses, she sometimes reaches out and touches my face. She’s getting better every day at holding up her head – which is good because she tends to get rather angry when her neck muscles grow tired and she thunks her head on my collarbone. πŸ™‚

I am so lucky. I am SO lucky.
