Ready as I could be. It was a good quiet. It was blissful.
A year later, I feel a different kind of bliss. Knowing that a little person (my little person!) is sleeping blissfully in the other room as I write this. That he is healthy. And that he is loved by so many.
And bliss in that he has given me a two hour nap to re-energize for the rest of our day.
