The First Few Memories

How nice is this? A quiet morning with my baby sleeping nor am I breastfeeding at the moment :)

I just wanted to express how awesome it is to be a mom. One of my life "goals" was to feel the maternal love for a child, and after just a few short weeks I can attest that it is the greatest feeling in the world.

For the record, Braelynn's head smells better than any other baby's head. I love her little Gremlin sounds she makes when she's content. Kent and I have never laughed so hard as we do when she does her little chicken dance to tell us she is hungry. It is also so cute that she roots away from me and is too stubborn to let me help her find the food!

She brings so much joy to our home and we are so lucky to have her.

Oh! I remember smelling Sakura's head too! And their tiny newborn cries... never drew angry glares, only "aws" from anyone. :) So glad you are enjoying your little one.
