He’s finally here. Born on December 28 at 8:37pm. Weighing in at 7lb 2oz and measuring at 20 1/4 inches. And bringing me more joy than I thought possible.
There is so much to say and hopefully I’ll get to it in the coming weeks because right now? I find myself tongue tied. As I look at my second son I can only say that this love? Words can’t sum it up. In the face of this intense love? Words simply fail. All I know is as he lay in my arms, my older son kissing his new brother’s forehead. My brothers and parents, my husband, looking down at the scene with hearts brimming over, I got a brief glimpse into the meaning of life. And this? Loving? Being Loved? Letting the love soak into your bones and marinate in your heart? This. This is it.
Welcome to the world baby Musa. It’s not perfect but with you here it has grown just that much more beautiful.
And thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. Please know you were in mine.
