upon waking

when she woke from her nap
milla was still sleeping.
the sun had long since
said its goodbyes
and the house was nearly dark itself.
the inside quiet
coupled with the city hum
seeping in through the cracks
of the windows
was mesmerizing.
she rested her head on my shoulder
and we rocked and danced,
danced and rocked.
for a long time.

it was one of those moments. . .

Jen, I can't tell you how many times I've looked at Olivia and wondered where I was when she was a baby. Those moments were so few when they were so close together, that I almost can't remember any of them at all. I am so glad you savored that!

Ohhh...I love those moments and rarely do we take the opportunity to enjoy them! Thanks for that little thought!
