If you haven't had a child, I can't even begin to describe the feeling of holding your baby for the first time. Even if you have a child, you probably got to hold your baby soon if not immediately after birth. I didn't. I didn't get to hold my baby until 2 days after he was born. Luckily I was drugged up or the emotional torment would have eaten me alive. It's so hard to describe the physical and emotional wave that totally enveloped me when this tiny being was placed in my arms. For me, it was akin to the aftermath of crying, when you feel relieved and warm and know that everything will be alright. But times a million.
He's always happiest in the morning. Yes, I'm going to be one of those parents who think their kid is the greatest and the world and everything pretty much revolves around them.
