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.
