After Tera was born, I spent literally hours just staring at her. I loved the way she felt when she was sleeping in my arms. I have to say, one of the best parts of being a mom, is feeling her heart beat as she sleeps on me and hearing her little snores as she lays on my shoulder. On the nights when she falls asleep drinking her bottle and she's actually completely asleep before I put her in her crib, I feel like I might never let her go. I could stand there for hours just holding her as she sleeps and it's one of the most peaceful, reassuring feelings I've ever had. I don't know that that feeling will ever lose it's novelty. So far in the first year it hasn't.
