For my fat babies...

It's poetry time again at Pensieve, and this month I'm joining in on the "literary history-making challenge". Here's my first attempt at writing a 'pensieve'.

Baby Buddha

Swirls of barely-there silky hair, doughy thighs, pillow-fat feet kicking my arm.
Contented gurgles, milk-dripping mouth sucking noisily at my breast.
Slobbery, wide open mouth kisses, smack on my lips like strawberry Bubble-Yum.
Moist, sticky, tickle-begging fat rolls, jiggle-giggling under my fingers.
Warm soft breath, pausing heart-breakingly for a moment in slumber, then flowing on, setting my mind at rest.

A babeeeee poem!

What a descriptive picture of your little one! I can see and smell and REMEMBER all things "baby". GREAT job of bringing me into your perspective :).

And...if I were still nursing? I'm afraid my milk would've just let down!

ha!

Oh, I can just see this baby and hear it too! This was so precious!! This was different and unique. I don't think there was a baby one on the roster before yours. Glad I came by.

Thanks, you guys, for all your kind words. I used to write a lot before kids, but it's nice to get out the old thinking cap and rev up the creative juices again...

I smiled as I began reading! This is the most beautiful part of motherhood right here. You captured it so beautifully I have tears in my eyes!!! Probably the favorite one I've read thus far!

I love this one - you and I had the same inspiration for our Pensieves, but I think you pulled yours off better.
