sakura bloom sling diaries : connection

posted on: Monday, November 26, 2012


Lately this lady of mine just wants to be held and held and held. She's had another little cold and is looking for some good old-fashioned mama time.


Sometimes I have to put her down to do chores or tend her brothers and she shouts and works herself up into a mini frenzy complete with bleating cries, you know the ones? So sad.


When I return to her red-faced little self she scoots right up onto my lap. I fold her into me and her small round head nestles into my shoulder. The bleating stops, sometimes she lets out a small sigh. She relaxes.


It's amazing how intensely we need that human connection -- how these tiny babes of ours feel that all is right with the world when they can feel our heartbeat. And how our own hearts feel like they will burst when our babies smile their gummy smiles up at us.


Amazing.

  5. Your baby is so adrorable. She's sweetheart. Babies are like that, they are attached to their mothers. All they want is their mother's attention, love and care.
