Sounds of new life

One of my greatest joys of the day was spending time in my rocker/glider/recliner holding my week-old son, watching him breathe...

... listening to him coo
... stroking his fine hair
... offering him my finger to grip
... nursing him
... swaddling him
... rocking him
... and ultimately falling asleep with him in my arms reclined back in the chair.

This is the best thing about being a mom to a newborn... being afforded the opportunity to take it all in.
