Claire got to hold Sophia Kate for almost two hours the other day. Sophia was so relaxed in Claire's arms, she slept and slept. Every now and then, she'd make a funny face, or stretch her head up, like a turtle, and then settle back down, hardly a sigh out of her.
I damn near had to wrestle her out of Claire's arm to hold her, for about five minutes. Her tiny head was a healing orb resting on my heart. It was a miracle, having this new person to the world, breathing in time with me.
I kept thinking she doesn't have one idea about much of anything, like oil spills or mortgage rates. No wonder her body was so completely relaxed, floppy boned. This baby girl is tension free unless she's hungry or needs a diaper change.
Note to self: hang more with Sophia Kate.
