When It's All Brand New

By MamaQ

Seeing MamaM with newborn baby Olive is such a treat.  I forgot how newborns stretch their little necks out like turtles and how they make delicious smacking noises as they try to breastfeed.  I forgot how tiny those babes are!  How messy those first poops can be!  She feels like air in my arms and I want to hold my breath for fear that too sudden a move will break her.  And those wee toes and fingers - darling!

Mayumi is two years old, so it's been a while since we had a newborn in the house.  It's amazing to look at her and (try to) remember when she was like Olive.  What a challenging, wonderful, delightful journey it's been.  MamaM has much to look forard to.
