Things I love about nursing:
~the deep-throated contentment moans Adele' makes when she is on the brink of milk utopia
~floppy, bendable ears available for play
~they way she folds her hands together while she nurses. Almost always.
~the way babies "need it" like, yesterday, but the moment they latch on~all is forgiven.
~legs curled into a ball
~baby breaths and Mama breaths becoming one
~it allows you those brief moments of stroking the deliciously rolled and wrinkled baby necks that are normally hidden. And maybe taking a nibble, or two.
~baby milk breathe
~they way her eyes roll back in her head as her eyelids get heavy...that, to me, is the look of sheer bliss.
~a totally dependent little being, and me-being able to provide what she needs.
~curling corners of a baby mouth-smiling, but not big enough to let go of the loot.
~finger paths woven among baby wisps on top of the softest, roundest head you've ever felt.
~Being able to give her something no one else can.
