We went for a final tea and coffee today, a walk to the art gallery, gave Freyja a bath, had another fancy dinner to soothe them (and for them to ask me back, if only for the yummy food and dish washing....I conspire with weaving the nest!). The air was cool, 20 some degrees and all is well. Freyja is an easy baby so far. She sleeps, is happy and peaceful. She burps, spits up, fills her diaper, coos, smiles, stretches and smells so good. All normal and fine. This is truly a relief that Sara has a healthy child. They are in the groove and are going to be the best parents. I am so proud of them. Life has changed, love in its greatest form has visited them for ever now. No going back, a child is a journey that is so rich and so special.
Sara and Ian, I have watched you welcome your child into the world. I have seen the love and the wonder in your eyes. I have seen you take on the mantle of this responsibility with deep love and consciousness. You will do well, you will be marvelous parents.
Freyja, my dearest one, I am so blessed to have been able to wait and be there for you when you arrived. I feel we have bonded with our times together rocking and singing and just being. I do think you recognize my voice, my little snow fairy. I can not wait for more adventures. You have two great parents, me, Bubbles and grandfather Chief who are madly in love with you. You have even more grandparents and an Auntie Anna and Uncle Terry, Aunt Allison and Uncle Brian and your Birthday cousin, Lyrah you have yet to meet and and other family that love you too. What a lucky girl.
Isn't that what it is all about, love, simple and true.
