She wasn't hungry.
She wasn't wet.
She just needed her mom.
She needed a little love.
I reached over to hold her hand.
She grabbed it with both hands and pulled it close to her.
She stopped crying.
She hugged my arm the way a toddler hugs a security blanket or favorite stuffed animal.
That little bit of contact from me, made her feel safe and happy.
For now, I am her primary source of security and comfort.
She needs and loves me.
Being a mom can be so amazing.
I love my little Avynlee.
Five minutes later, after I was sure my little one was sleeping soundly, I leaned over and kissed her cheek. She smiled. Being a mom is so amazing.
This is a sampling of the adorable pictures my amazing friend, Carlye took of baby A when she was one week old. Yeah, that was three months ago. She's so much bigger now! I am smitten with my sweet, little baby. She is so wonderful!
