The Beauty of a Newborn

The beauty of a newborn.

Their sweet smelling skin. The softness and newness you feel with each kiss.

How at such a tender age they assert their own personalities. Luckily for me, this one is as sweet as pie. And laid back. She's up for anything and rarely complains.

That no matter how few hours of sleep you get, it's all worth it. And you have the perfect excuse to drink 25 cups of coffee everyday. (Which is one of the beauties of bottle feeding).

And they make the perfect subjects. You can take 500 pictures and none of them turn out blurry, because they are so still. Which can also scare the pants off you in the middle of the night.

And they are the best of all blessings. Pooping, peeing, spit-up(ing) blessings. But blessings all the same.

Ahh...the newborn. The scariest but most beautiful creature you'll ever meet.
