I have no concept of time when you are lying on my chest. The weight of your baby body is more comforting than you know. A tiny heart beats opposite mine. Your body twitches and your booty bounces as you fall in and out of sleep.
Your perfect almond shaped eyes look up to see if I’m awake. As always, your left index finger is perfectly placed beneath the gap in your front teeth. Your blinks become slower and more frequent like your thick lashes weigh a ton. Refusing to slip into slumber, your baby bod flops from belly to back and over again.
Amidst your twirl, I catch a whiff of your luscious curls. I’m flooded with the scent of argan, jojoba, and coconut oils that wrap each of your beautiful and flawless coils. Then, I hear the sweetest sounds fall from your full lips. It's that baby babble that I just can’t resist.
I have no concept of time when you are lying on my chest. The outside world and all stresses completely melt away. I will stay here with you until the end of days. You are my baby, our baby, forever and always.
