Things I miss about having a baby.

September 24, 2009

3am. The only light on in the house is the baby’s bedroom. Me, on a chair next to her cot, with her feeding, while I ‘sh’, and stroke her hair. She finishes, breaks her latch, and flops her head onto my shoulder, asleep and full. Her face looks slightly drunk. Lifting her back into her cot, as slowly as I can, for fear of waking her.
