Sweet Caroline: Day 3

There is nothing like a newborn baby. It's altogether intoxicating. She is drunk on milk and the rest of us are drunk on her.

Right when she was born she didn't cry. As I lay in disbelief that she was there in my arms, she just looked around while we drank her in, trying to soak up every little bit of her, as if we were making up for lost time. What magic that moment was.

She has been such a peaceful baby so far. My heart is so full of her and I feel such honor and privledge to be her mama. What a blessing.

Day 3 IV

I am not the only one smitten with little Caroline. Her daddy takes every opportunity to grab her up and cuddle her in his arms. There is something entirely romantic about a man, particularly my own, holding a babe in his strong hands.

Day 3

Lewis is pretty much in his own world but is paused in his tracks here and there to come give baby sister a kiss on the head or to hear her make those sweet little baby noises.

day 3 II

Even Spiderman is more than willing to pause his busy schedule to bask in the moments of a new sister. He's been very good with her, and when he talks to her he raises the pitch of his voice. It's beautifuly tender and lovingly proud.

Day 3 III

I am dying! I just want to kiss those sweet cheeks. Nothing like a fresh baby. She is a doll. Way to go Ker.

There really is something special about how boys feel about girls, especially brothers for sisters. I know my brothers gave me so much love and care and protection even when we were young. It's like every boy wants to love and take care of and protect a girl. What good times these are.

Congratulations KeriAnn and family! She is beautiful. I am glad you are enjoying the moments when your baby is so new. They pass so quickly.
