Sweet baby Enzo joined his family last month, and it was a pleasure to visit and see the details of newborn life once again. It's a bit surreal how quickly it goes. I remember when I was pregnant everyone would say it, and to be honest, I thought it was so cliche. Surely a few months would pass just as any other.
But now I get it. A newborn's face changes within a matter of weeks as they develop and form into alert and inquisitive beings that can't seem to get enough of life, crawling around getting stuck under kitchen chairs. (At least, that's the phase we're in at my house currently.)
Being around something so perfect and fragile recharges me and reminds me how precious and wonderful life is--sleep depravation and all.
