To a lot of little things that suddenly are front and center every day.
Things that I've taken for granted with all of my other babies. My "normal" babies.
Now I am blown away by the fact that Samuel can bring his hands to his mouth. I never realized that such a simple thing could be so important.
That he has a killer grip-especially on that eye mask while in the light bed. (Can't begin to count how many times I crawled out of bed to his crying last night to find that he'd pulled it down to his chin. And on that note-he cries!)
He smiles so big in his sleep. Those sleep smiles have always been a love of mine, but now it holds the hope that he will smile on purpose in the coming months....and that is a big deal.
He flinches and squirms when a camera flash goes off, meaning his eyes work at least to some degree....we didn't know if we could count on that.
I am changing a million little diapers every day so things are functioning inside-I never knew it was possible to be so happy about full diapers.
It's interesting to sit in the not knowing camp. Beyond frustrating at some times, incredibly humbling at others.
If nothing else, it certainly enhances perspective on life. And all those "little" things.
(you know, like these little bird legs. Love them!!)
