She is here 

I may not remember today’s date or if I took a shower this morning, can’t tell if it’s day or night, just feels like a stretch of time. A long stretch. Sleep deprived- I shut my eyes and sang for her, my sore arms rocked her back and forth. Then, at the crack of dawn, with a nip of winter chill, I caught a glimpse of my baby smiling in her sleep. 


Her smile has stirred a kind of fierce love inside of me that I didn’t know I even had.
19 days in, and oh so overwhelmed. And! Crazy postpartum hormones, go away!!

    Congratulations to you and Murali! Welcome to parenthood, it is an amazing ride, believe me on that :). I am a mom to 2 kids, totally get it when you say you experienced fierce love. I had the same experience, so much so that, I refused to give my babies to anyone to hold the first few hours after their birth.
