Someone asked if I was tired recently. Exhausted, I replied. But in complete bliss. (I think that first week in the hospital made the first month seem easy! Tulsi is very content, thus the addition of the name Santoshi to her ever growing name: Tulsi Lila Grace Little Bird Squeaker Santoshi Kostecki Shaw.) I’m loving every bit of this time…days AND nights…her oh-so sweet, quiet profiles, her super cute breathing and gurgling sounds while she nurses, long periods of staring deep into each other’s eyes, her hilarious expressions and daily discoveries, and yes, even cloth diapers — fleecey goodness on her tush!… (btw, don’t they look like prayer flags blowing on the clothesline?!)

PS Happy belated mother’s day to all you beautiful women!
