My 15 Minutes

I've heard that everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame.
I'd trade my 15 minutes of fame for the 15 minutes I shared with Camryn last night. She woke up at midnight for her "milkies," as usual. And after she finishes nursing, she's usually anxiously seeking her binkie and leaning in toward the bed, wanting to be laid down.
However, last night, she put her head down on my shoulder and was almost immediately breathing deeply, sound asleep. The scent of baby lotion and warm milky breath, coupled with the weight of her little baby body on my chest were almost more than I could take without my heart just bursting!
I settled into the big oversized chair and just soaked it up for about 15 minutes before she began to stir.
I'd trade fame for that anyday!

Isn't that sweet? I can't help to kiss Orianna's soft cheeks and neck even if it is midnight or 4am ...what a blessing!

Oh, I miss those late nights so bad! I'm glad you got to soak it up. :)
