Peace

For just a few moments tonight, I had my baby back.

Em woke up around 11:15 tonight, needing to use the restroom.

When she was done, I picked her up and carried her in my arms to her room.

And just held her and slowly rocked her. Not because she needed it. Just because. And for a few sweet moments, she was my baby again. She held me, and I held her. Her warmth and mine became one, just as it did so often when she was an infant.

It was just us.

So peaceful.

So perfect.
