the baby fog
Newborns. It's the sweetest softest moment in your life, and I think the lack of sleep only adds to the feelings that bubble up, oh, every hour as you look at this amazing tiny, new little person in front of you. It's like you're walking through a fog for the first couple of months, and there are tough moments, but there are also quiet, squishy, sweet as syrup moments too. Those cheeks will never be that soft again, and that hair will never be quite so fuzzy so you hold their little face against yours and you breathe in.
