Tonight I wrapped my arms around you,
and we said your prayers.
You, at 6 1/2 months,
are grabbing everything in sight -
my hair, mouth, and cheek.
you wrapped your hand around my finger,
pulled it in close to your face,
and held it until you fell asleep.
And there we sat, in the nursery -
me holding you holding me,
and at that moment,
my heart grew bigger.
