Letters to Maisie

Dear Maisie, You woke up with a stuffy nose this morning. I took one look at you and knew it would be an... anything you'd like sort of day. So we spent a lot of time snuggling on the couch. Watching movies. Eating blueberries. You were extra snuggly at nap time, so I took advantage of it, and we just rocked and hugged and sang songs. You hugged me back and hummed along. Small arms wrapped around my neck. Your little fingers getting tangled in my hair. Every once and a while, you would pull away and look me straight in the eye and give me a huge smile, then bury your head into my shoulder again. It melted me. You will one day not want to wrap your arms around my neck, and will likely not need me to snuggle you for hours. But for now, it sure feels amazing. So lucky. Sleep well my little peach, xo
