Today being Friday and me finding the 5minutes…I am ready…and the word is?????
There is nothing new like the new you feel when they lay the slippery warm cozy baby on your chest. I don’t mean after they wipe it off… I mean the slippery baby.
I have been so blessed to just push a baby out in my bedroom…just me and my husband.
No one else.
Just us and a toddler who was asleep on the bed.
I just kneeled down and took a deep breath in and
“You are going to wanna catch this….”I said as I took another big breath in…and….’
an everyday miracle and no one, but us,knew our son was here.
I lay down because I was too tired to stay upright any longer…and my husband passed him over to me.
My babies had always been wiped down…or laid on me and immediately vigorously toweled while I catch my breath and stroked their fingers…but that baby was still warm and soft
slippery and blessed
cozy and unfolding with a sweet gurgle and cough
no shock or surprise of rough rubbing or cold hands and metal prodding…just
new and unfolding
his parents eyes meeting over him
Nothing is as new as that…nothing. I will never forget the feeling of something so new…that no one on the whole earth knows it has happened and how it’s just you and him and watching of the new unfold glistening in the soft light of a closet left on.
Hard to believe that story took place five years ago! Oh my goodness…5years and three kids ago..two adoptions and one more birth ago..Sheesh! It goes so fast! Well because of said kids and a HUGE thing coming up this weekend (that I can’t wait to tell you about)…I was a little late to the 5 minute friday party…Did you write one? I would love to read it…leave a comment so I can find you!~T
