I know I am too late for Beth's theme of the month, but I thought I'd do it anyway, as tonight I had the inspiration for it.
Nathan fell asleep on my chest. It's been such a long time sine he's done that, since he was a newborn. If I am holding him he wants to nurse, so I usually rub his back in bed. But tonight he fell asleep on my chest and I listened to his breathing and thought about simplicity. The most basic human thing, breathing and it sounds so beautiful and peaceful.
I love being a mother.
