Almost 2 months old. Where did it go?
Jessica is making a habit of rolling over before we wake her up in the morning. Just a few days ago I went in to get her and she was staring back at me, just lookin around. And in that moment of realizing my baby girl was discovering the world around her for the first time, I, myself, discovered what it’s all about. What this is all about – parenting, babies, children. Watching life unfold, literally before my eyes.
It’s about the feeling in the pit of my stomach when I go to her after she’s been crying and there’s a shiny streak down her cheek of brand new tears.
It’s about the mornings we greet each other face on, smiling and discovering another day together.
It’s about the smiles she so willingly gives, so unconditionally to her daddy. And it’s about the noises she’s starting to make, and the bubbles she blows in her mouth.
It’s all about the scent of her baby fresh skin and the weightlessness of her body on my shoulder as she falls asleep in the nape of my neck.
It’s all about her. There’s reason to this world when reason isn’t logical. Life was created inside of me, and sustained by me. That’s what this is all about.
