Six Days Ago

…I met the missing chunk of my heart. 
This is Ms. Vera Mae. 
Last Sunday I blogged about what we were doing in our waiting…ice cream and farmer’s markets. This Sunday I’m drinking in sweet newborn nectar and wondering how we ever survived without this girl. Labor pains started a few hours after I posted that post and our sweet bundle arrived at 3:16 the next morning. 
These last 6 days with her have been emotional for me. I know this is probably the last time for this baby magic and I’m drinking it in. I want to hold each second close for a while. I want to share every detail, but the details are all mine for right now. Mine to replay and reminisce. I wish I could redo these last six days over and over…they are so precious to me. 
I’ll be back here when the words are ready.
