a serene life
Ekere - 32
1 Daughter - (6 mo)
Serene is a beautiful girl. She is much like I expected based on her behavior in the womb: feisty, hungry, responsive and then suddenly, unpredictably still. She makes me laugh sometimes and want to cry others. What does she need? Why she crying? Why won't she's sleep? Is her diaper wet? Why not? Where did she get that strong set of lungs from?
When she is calm and comfortable, I feel peace beyond peace. When she cries - and she does cry - it stirs something in me that I have never felt.
When I look in her face I know there's nothing I wouldn't do for her.
