You immediately went to sleep cradled in my armpit. I had no idea what I was doing and my mind was racing with what ifs, but you still felt totally safe in my presence. Because I'm your mama. I'm the mommy God gave you (I used to repeat that to myself all the time because it didn't seem real!) That night, you slept bundled up between me and daddy, breathing quick, newborn breaths.We didn't sleep at all. "Her nose is whistling, her breathing is irregular. She keeps moaning! Should we call the midwife???" But you were just fine, your lungs were getting used to dry Winter air.
My sweet almost 1 year old daughter, you are truly a gift from God. May this next year be filled with lots and lots of belly laughs and "rainbow butt" moments ;)
*Yes Sisi, I said the word butt. It's just, sometimes I feel so much joy it's like riding on a rainbow. Best way I've heard that feeling described.
