Under the light of a thousand stars this sweet babe was born. The stroke just after midnight, late and entirely on her own terms. She has the same milky breath I remember my babies having, the same lower lip quiver when she cries, the same innocence that makes this world a better place. New parenthood is overwhelming, exhausting, relentless. And it gets worse and it gets better. However, they are in for so much joy. So much. A new kind that I have no words to describe- but it is as palpable as it is indescribable.
I was so honored to witness this little trio, 6 days fresh out of the womb. Cuddling and awe gazing at each other. Congratulations Levi & Lauren, you did good.
