a weekend made in heaven

Are there even words to describe falling in love with a newborn in two short days, a newborn who isn’t even your own? that happened to me this weekend, how bittersweet! Every moment with her was savoured. Every feeding, every rocking, even every diaper change. It made my heart soar and sink all at the same time. How desperately I yearn for a child again…oh my. I swear, my Heaven is full of babies. My Heaven, the place I’m going after I leave this life, is full of newborn infants who I can cradle and sing lullabyes on end.  It was exhausting too, but in a good way. She was pure sweetness. Ugh, I could go on and on… ! But returning her to her parents was nice too, they missed her like crazy. And now, I miss her too! I can’t believe how attached you get so quickly to these little beings. Even A. was missing her last night.  And Sweetlove held her so carefully and sang twinkle twinkle little star to her, soooo sweet. So yeah, there is some post-Claire blues but it was so worth it.
