Almost Beyond.

“She laid on my chest & her breathing filled me almost to beyond what I could hold.” — StoryPeople

The sweet pressure of their tiny body on your belly. The sighs and gurgles. The stillness and magic of the moment. Any mother knows this feeling. It’s not long before they are too big to hold this way…or too squirmy. But in the early days, well, I know I could lay this way for hours just soaking in every inch of their newness. Feeling utterly complete. Overwhelmed with gratitude and in awe of the miracle of life. Anyone who has held a baby softly cradled to their chest knows this too.

Welcome Maggie. My last newborn of 2011. You are a blessing, a miracle from head to toe.

  • Harkamal - oh, my breath caught in my throat with that first image. I remember feeling that way. And it is so hard to keep that feeling of a newborn…your own newborn, because they are so different so soon. But that image makes me not only remember, but actually feel the way I felt with my own little girl only a year ago, and wish terribly to have that moment back again.

    Thanks for giving me that in the middle of the craziness that is around me now!
