My babies are not babies any more, per say, in fact the other night I went to check on them right before I turned out all the lights and they both looked so big all stretched out and relaxed, sleeping. There is, and always will be, a space, a time continuum, a sacred place in a parent’s heart where her children, no matter their age or size, are always innocent, tiny, completely dependent, and perfectly perfect babies. Whenever, I hold a new baby, even just for a few hours to make memories for new parents, I re-visit my own memories of when mine were this very little and brand-new people in my life -brand-new perfect people, and my heart feels full- full of them and the beginning of our life together.

Congratulations to Yas and Amir!! Baby Zain was born into so much love!! I was grateful to feel it; thank you for sharing it with me!! Much love to you all!!
