Nice to Meet You!

First Thoughts For a New Born

Well, hello, little one. It is nice to meet you. I see you have your dad’s ears and chin and my fair skin. Whose eyes will those turn into? I’m so glad you are finally here with me – on the outside. Lay with me and feel my skin. It is the same as yours. My skin is yours. I am yours.

If you were my first I may have said “I am yours and you are mine.” But your older siblings have taught me an important lesson about babies: they are people, new people. It is nice to meet you.

I have made you but you are your own. I am just the lucky one who gets to meet you. I will see your personality before you learn filters. I will study you because you are my love. I will understand your patterns – the things you naturally excel at and those you find hard. And as you come into yourself and look for independence I will do my best to pass on what I’ve learned about you, myself, and the world.

I hope to teach you to love. Love others and love nature. I will start this lesson today. I will show you how I love you and how worthy you are. I will teach you to love yourself and the rest will fall into place. I hope you enjoy self-improvement but love your own core.

Come lay with me, on my skin, and we can start this lesson. I love you.
