e.e. cummings reference for the babe

DC is growing so very quickly. Every time I put him down for a nap and go to spread the blanket over him, I notice more each day that his favorite blankets since birth no longer cover him completely, or drown him like they once did when he first got home from the hospital.

The second you put him down for the night, he grabs the blanket pulls it up to his face, and holds it close, as if to fill the void where he knows his Momma's chest should be. That is the special bond I am lucky enough to experience, thanks to breastfeeding.

He is such a happy boy. I few days ago, I made a deal with myself to not look at my phone or pick up a book while he is awake. Mainly, because he is growing right before my very eyes, and I don't want to miss a minute of it. Since making that resolution, I notice so much more. From walks to mealtimes, everything is so much better. It runs smoother, and more importantly we are both so much happier. He laughs and laughs, and is so very curious about the world. He started exploring on his own around the house, with his little army crawl, for the first time ever today. I was so amazed, I filmed every second. Granted, it isn't the most excitable of clips, but it is a moment in his life were he was on his own, learning about the world around him, and all I could do was watch. The first of many, I am sure.

Dearest little son of mine,
I love you with my whole heart. I carry your heart. I carry it in mine. 
-e.e. cummings ( i loved this poet ever since i was a little girl, and never knew the true meaning of so many of his words until i knew you my son. my sweet.)
