Radiant Moments

"All the pictures that hung in my memory before I knew you have faded and given place to our radiant moments together. Now I cannot live apart from you....You are everything to me."- Sarah Bernhardt

We lie in bed. I held the camera above us with my left hand and clicked, not knowing if any of the photos would turn out. I was hoping to capture the moment. It's a very special time when we nurse and nuzzle...the glances, the smiles, the shared laughter over some unspoken silliness and the sloppy kisses of an 8 month old boy.

OH SO SWEET, so nice, wendy!! what a complete trip. b and i took photos (dark) of miles in bed this morning (i'll post one up anyway) because we are always yearning to capture that magical time! then i scroll down and see that you have posted a photo of our favorite lullaby cd. after miles was born at the midwife's home, we went to a hotel to rest for a few days (our home was not ready for us) and we looped this sucker about a hundred and fifty times. so comforting. we are so connected! miles even dresses like
you are so connected to your baby, he is so lucky!!
