We're here

I arrived an hour ago. Hudson and I are alone in his sunny yellow room, in the house (Lynn's gone to do errands).

The little man's sound asleep - he's been since I arrived. Car movement, car-seat and a morning of fierce crying wooped him. We'll wake him at noon to feed.

His room is quiet, gentley sun-shined and full of gifts and baby ephemera. Lynn will walk me through it all later - it's mystifying to me now.


I fed him, burped him, and had a very satisfactory diaper change. Now (I type one handed, he sleeps across the other), he's back fast asleep. Quick breaths, little grunts, passing ghosts of toothless smiles.
