I'd forgotten...

... how much I love:

the smell of a newborn baby's head
and their soft, scrunchy necks
the way my lips fit perfectly in the bridge of their nose
wide eyes at 1 in the morning
and bobbing little heads when put to my shoulder
teeny, tiny hands wrapped tightly around my fingers
floppy sleeping positions
the way every picture of a newborn turns out perfectly
grunts and squeaks and grimmaces
and the most adorable little sneezes
sleepy smiles, gas or no gas :)
melting like butter when placed chest to chest
and the immediate calming effect of holding baby in your arms
the excuse to just sit and cuddle and stare and think deep thoughts

I love ALL those things about babies too. They are just so special. Enjoy every minute of her. I'm so jealous I can't have anymore. I'm major baby hungry lately.

As exhausted as new mommies are, there is NOTHING sweeter than holding and staring at your newborn. NOTHING.
*sigh*
