So...

So...
my life has changed.
never to be the same.
check this off the list.
God has granted me my wish.

So...
it's a boy!
A son.
A buddy.
A pal.
What do I do with a boy?

So...
it is finished,
labor, delivery
I survived it,
even a surgery.

So...
sorry I couldn't deliver you
yet, God delivered you
For months, 9, you were
safe
protected
cared for
loved
growing
stretching
breathing
sleeping

So...
now here you are
in my arms
safe
protected
cared for
loved
growing
stretching
breathing
sleeping

So tiny (lips, fingers, toes, eyelashes, arms, legs, knees, ears, and even fingernails)
So small
So helpless
So bald!
So precious
So priceless
So breakable
So weightless

So....
beautiful,
wonderful,
amazing,
exhilerating,
remarkable 
startling,
incrediable,
and miraculous.

So...
this is the one who had been kicking me.

So...
you sleep
you eat
you cry
you gaze
at me
You see
me
and I see
you.

So...
this is love.
