"Sometimes I say to myself, 'Enry, waz es going on ere? Somezing stronge indeed."
Meet Henry's alter ego, The Inspector. He's a people watcher, that Henry. And a very easy baby, thank the good Lord above, amen.
Henry is our little surprise. The bonus. The caboose.
Funny how you are going along and you think your life is full, but there is something huge waiting for you just around the corner.
Sometimes that something isn't so great.
And then sometimes its a squishy bundle of easy baby. I tell you folks, this boy is everything that is right in the world all wrapped up in the softest skin you've ever felt. Skin that is very, very fun to blow raspberries on, if I do say so.
I was rocking Henry while he slept. He started laughing. He laughed so hard he woke himself up. I wish I could see that again everyday for the rest of my life.
P.S. I just want to add that if you are reading this, and you are a girl hoping and waiting for a baby, I have two things I want to say specifically to you. First, all of my babies were that something huge waiting around the corner. I have spent years yearning for my babies. Your corner is out there. But until you turn the corner, enjoy the road. Second, I am convinced that the joy and gratitude I feel as a mother is in direct correlation to the pain I endured in childlessness. Things always taste better when you are hungry. Everybody knows that.
