Sophia

FamilyEmily Rollings

As I'm sure you've guessed by now, I had a baby! Only a couple of days late, Sophia Elizabeth Anne was born at the end of May, a tiny little package of total love. The last few weeks have been the most precious of my life. Just the three of us, getting to know the newest member of our family, and I sort of wish they could last forever.

I'm not sure I knew what to expect from life with a newborn but the reality has surpassed my wildest dreams. All the fears I had before just ceased to exist the second Sophia was born. A sense of perspective doesn't even begin to cover it.

Sophia, if you are happy, so am I. Even when you wake us up at 3am (in fairness, you are actually a great sleeper) nothing could possibly compare to the aching joy you bring to our lives. I cannot believe that you are almost three weeks old. I want to re-live these weeks all over again, to drink in all the cuddles, the priceless facial expressions, and of course, kissing those adorable feet.
