Magical Moments and Fond Memories

We stared endlessly at tiny features, little feet, and newborn hands, certain the site of you would never be enough.


Walked the floor praying for sleep while exhaustion washed over both of us.

 

But the swaying and rocking was quickly replaced with running and laughing,

newly discovered obstacles to climb, words to say, and questions to ask.


And it was rapidly replaced with perfect memories and overflowing hearts.

    • multitaskingmumma

    • multitaskingmumma

      • Carina
        September 12, 2011 | 10:04 pm

        I know… I’ve been gone. I’m sorry. Things got crazy over the summer with job searches and getting into grad school. I’m trying to get myself back up and writing (and reading) blogs more often.

        • multitaskingmumma
          September 17, 2011 | 8:25 am

          I’ve had to cut back a bit too… it becomes too much.

    Aw, you even make the difficult times sounds sweet. Sleepless nights. I remember those loud and clear and don’t miss them but yes, a part of me loved the cuddling of it.

    Very nicely written Leighann!
