My daughter Luna
I just realized, now that she is 12 weeks old, that I never posted a birth announcement on the blog!
So here it is: LUNA IS BORN!!! And healthy and doing so well. I'm sooooo happy. She was born on November 18th, 2009 and cried right away, given to my arms to hold and kiss and never give up.
It has been so healing to have her. She looks like her brother, Otto, and this makes me miss him so much and yet, it gives me a chance to love him some more, and talk to him when I talk to her. She's a happy baby, we spend most of our time together. I sing to her all the time, songs that go:
Luna, luna luna baloona, luna luna luna baboona, luna luna lovely luna Luna halleluna.
The melodies are great, and I think the lyrics are pretty cool too.
I've played piano for her and she kicks and smiles and cries. She's amazing.
I'll be learning how to arrange things so I can write music and take care of her, and I'm not worried about how it will work out, because my heart is so full. I'm used to years of waking up with anxiety, a little melancholy, and now I wake up to a laughing little one who I love so much. It's quite a change.
I thank her for changing my view of life, of the sun, the grass, the clouds. She gets very quiet and observant when we go outside, the built in appreciation of the sacred earth. I love her wonderment and passion over the simplest things in life: eating, and being together.
Much more about her soon.
Much love to you all!
Jessica and Ryan and Otto Luna and
