It's you and me.
Quietly rocking in the dim light of your nightlight.
Some days this is the only time you seem to nurse without distractions.
Everyday you get more and more distracted by that whirlwind of a sister. You want to get up and play with her so badly that sometimes I think you're just going to get up and run.
Having the connection of being able to nourish you from my body when you are on the outside is more than I ever imagined. Seeing the small smiles you give me mid way through a nursing session make all the sleep deprivation worth it. It's as if you are telling me thank you. And when you smile so big that you can't contain the milk and it streams down your cheek. I know you love me as much as your little body can.
Baby boy, are you real? You are my favorite part of midnight💫
