One month ago, George Thomas joined us on the outside. He is the embodiment of joy; I am awed by the blessings he brings to this family (even in my nearly sleepless nights).
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the reason why I have not posted anything in the last several weeks. It isn't (just) that I am only getting a modicum of sleep, dealing with shared thrush (and can I just say: ow!) and attachment parenting an infant; I get lost looking into his baby-blues; I've pressed "pause" on life to just kick back in my rocker and breathe in his baby scent as he snuggles against me; I live in that glow on the faces of his older sibs as they bend to kiss his head or eagerly ask, "Can I hold George now!?"
There are thoughts to share from this season, however. I am grateful for Jen's summons to get up from my chair and post a few. Stay tuned.
