He nursed all night

Isn't there a song titled "I drove all night?"  Each morning, John asks how Kapaun slept and this song usually comes to mind.  I would love to have a video camera on me when I have a newborn especially in the middle of the night.  Up, down, up down, binki in, nurse, hold, head bob, nurse, burp, head bob, up down, and finally I just lay down and nurse him and we always sleep great.  I love slithering out of bed in the morning to look back and see how his little body was perfectly curved toward mine.  I will miss these moments when I am older. I love how he cuddles right in and finds contentment right next to me.






Newborn legs enchant me as I felt them kick me for so long.  I try to memorize their baby feet in my mind and what their chicken legs look like all scrunched up.

I thought this was beautiful in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi today.  We must keep giving.
