*the way a newborn smells
*the softness of the skin on the bottom of feet that have never taken a step
*the little sighing sounds a baby makes when nursing
*tiny chest moving up and down to the rhythm of shallow baby breaths
*how they stay crunched up with knees to their chest and bottom sticking out when you first pick
*fists tightly clenched
*the feeling of falling asleep with a baby on your chest
*the heaviness of a little one who cannot yet hold his head steady, and is happiest slumped against you, completely helpless and dependent
*silky softness of baby hair

Oh yes... *sigh*
Babies bring so much quiet joy!
I was just rocking Samuel and thinking some of these same thoughts...
nursing my babe as i read this and pausing to look in her sweet eyes.
I ♥ the hair...so precious!
Yes, to everything, yes.
I love this.. :)
