My Heart Melts

The night before we made our family a party of three there was a flurry of packing and last minute prepping.  Trash was taken out, all dishes done, bags packed, and crib ready to go for the return home.

During this, we were talking about different things and I suddenly realized I had never seen my husband holding a small child before.

So I asked if he has actually ever held a baby.

And he admitted no.  He had no idea what to do, what was going to happen, and was not sure what was going to happen.

The next morning, as I was taken to recovery, they asked him if he wanted to hold his son.  He honestly told the nurse he had never held a baby before and had no idea what to do.

A minute later I looked up and they had settled the baby in his arms and he was smiling at his son.

A week later and he races to get him when awakens so they can talk and spend time together.  He is changing diapers, making bottles, and rocking this tiny version of him to sleep

And every time I look at them together, my heart melts and I feel so blessed.  I have my little family, they love one another, and everything is finally as it should be....
