My Confession

I secretly love it when Natalie wakes up during the night. I'm sure it's b/c it doesn't happen too often, nor does it take much effort to get her to go back to sleep. However, I cherish those times. We rock with her sitting on my lap facing me, her head on my chest, under my chin. My arms are wrapped snugly around her little body and I can hear her light breathing. On cold nights like tonight, I wrap a blanket around us. She falls back to sleep in my arms almost instantly, and sometimes she even snores! Those are some of the sweetest moments. I can't help but wonder if this is a part of the vision God had when he created mothers. This love is so beautiful...and I see it everywhere, not just between Natalie and I.
