Oh Baby, Mine


Dear Henry,

I love sharing the night with you. It has been our special time together from the day you were born, something nobody else can claim. Before you fall asleep I whisper everything we did during the day and rub your fuzzy head over and over and over. You take sudden breaks from nursing just to look up at me and make sure that I am still there, then you smile and get right back to eating.

Every night I sing you this song until you are sound asleep.



Sweet dreams my pretty baby.

Love,
Mom
