This week she asked for people to submit photos of Rockin' The Baby - showing love, nurturing, laughter, whatever. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the digital image of my favorite pic of Superman and I together in the hospital. Although later I would experience Postpartum Anxiety, those first few days in the hospital with him were when I fell completely, 100% head-over-heels in LOVE with my little boy and it showed in every picture.
With Sidekick it was a little different. I was still completely in love with her but this time around I was much more relaxed and at ease in the role of new mom. I think it shows in this picture. This picture was taken on her first day of life and I was so overwhelmed with gratitude that God had given me a beautiful, healthy little girl. I kept whispering to her, "I love you, I love you" hoping that she would somehow understand.
Just this week she started pulling on my leg and saying, "mama, mama" when she wants me. I think she understands.
