Amazing. It’s been 5.5 weeks since you joined us and I find myself more and more dependent on you, while simultaneously already finding you less and less dependent on me. Parenthood is truly wicked.
It’s a realization that made me hold you a little tighter today. One that made me lean into your cheeks a bit closer, for longer after we bathed you. Everything I’m doing for you today is magnified because I feel both lucky and cursed to realize how unique each moment I have with you is, and how rapidly our library of memories will expand.
Today, munchkin, my love for you is absolutely magnified. And it’s only the beginning.
