Snuggles and coos, swaddled in soft, pretty blankets.
Skin smooth as silk,
Intoxicating new baby smells.
Tiny fingers and toes,
One perfect little nose.
Awake, asleep, awake, asleep.
Rocking, shushing, kissing, hugging,
Feeding, burping, changing.
These tender moments go so fast.
Hold on, take every second in.
Close your eyes, hold that little one tight;
Take a deep breath and begin it all again.
This morning I woke up picturing how I woke up on our wedding day with the sun shining through the window and excited to marry my best friend. Today I am even more excited to be married to this man and I understand what it means even more to call him my best friend. God has brought us a long way in 10 years of marriage and I look forward to where he takes us in this next decade of life together.
We are heading to California next week for our first kid-free vacation to celebrate our anniversary! If you want to follow our trip from L.A. to San Francisco, I post most of our life on Instagram (@jenclaytor) these days, so follow along if you want:)
