Day One

Is it even possible to lay this little guy down for even a moment? I am finding that answer a resounding "no". Mike and I have spent the past 24 hours holding our sweet Othniel endlessly. Maybe knowing he is more than likely our last baby is making us increasingly sentimental but I find myself trying to capture each moment~not necessarily on camera but in my memory.
Each sweet breath on my neck, every squeak he gives when he gets hungry, each yawn, every moment he opens his little swollen eyes. This time is so incredibly fleeting and sounds ridiculous to try to find the words to describe it.
Tears run down my cheeks as I write this because I cannot even begin grasp the depth of this blessed life that we have. It is overwhelming to be given such a gift.
