Especially when the baby is mine | Multitude Monday

January 31, 2011

When the night comes
polar bear cubs sleep in
their caves calves on the farm sleep in the barn
warm in the hay nothing in this world is quite
as sweet as a tiny baby fast asleep

I could watch you to the end of time
especially when that baby is mine

kittens and pups eyes all closed up
snuggle near mom
robin’s and wren’s chicks have been fed
sleep until dawn
nothing in this world is quite as sweet
as a tiny baby fast asleep

I could watch you to the end of time
especially when that baby is mine

Sara Groves, from Station Wagon: Songs for New Parents

I guess you can tell I’ve been listening to a lot of Sara Groves recently, huh? I’ve been loving this song and often play it multiple times.

Which brings me to Sophia. This little lady has my heart and this Monday I’m very thankful for . . .

125. A good night’s sleep. After a rough 6 weeks or so of nighttime sleep, Sophia is finally sleeping once again through the night. Thank goodness! For a while there I could be up 8 or so times between her and the boys, not even getting a two hour block of uninterrupted sleep.

126. The way Sophia snuggles down to sleep, tucking her arms under her body.

127. Her sweet giggles.

128. Her bright-eyed smiles that light up her whole face. And did I mention her darling dimple?

129. The way she laughs and smiles at her brothers.

130. How she snuggles with her daddy and watches guitar dvds with him.

131. Her “chatting” and talking when she wakes up.

132. The way she attacks the spoon when feeding her cereal.

133. Her delicate fingers.

134. The way she grabs my face to offer sloppy “kisses.”

135. Feeling her velvety head against my cheek.

Can’t get enough of this little sweetie!

    And she is OH SO SMILEY every time I see her. Like Josh said, “I think sometimes she’s gonna smile her face off.”
