everyday moments

the silkiness of her hair,

the coos and sighs she makes,

her tiny hand on my breast, so possessive, as we nurse,

the spontaneous giggle while she slept,

her eyes, so wide and starting to darken, taking in the world,

my daughter.  my sweet Georgia.


An update

I had a baby.

Her name is Georgia Cadence.

It’s pretty overwhelming to think “I had a baby” and I named her.  Sometimes I look at her in shock and disbelief.  She grew from tiny microscopic cells inside my body.  I carried her for forty weeks and then birthed her.  The food she eats comes from my body.  I can self-regulate my temperate so to adjust to her needs.  My husband and I have combined our DNA to make a human being.  And I got to name her.

Georgia Cadence.

Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
