dearest little'un


Little one, baby child -
you are 6 months now. and while I should say "the time has flown by" it doesn't really feel that way at all. every day and week has come with my pausing to contemplate you. sometimes i want to hurry up and meet your face, other times I am content feeling you moving inside, knowing you are covered and safe and growing just as quickly as you need to. you are teaching me all kinds of things, but above all you are teaching me to be tenderly patient...
