My Favourite Moments

Today’s #Prose4T has been inspired by my three beautiful babies. I’m pretty sure I am not having anymore children, and realising this made me reflect on their births, and how magical and precious those first moments are.

The last push,
The first cry,

Skin to skin,
Pain forgotten,

Eyes open wide,
They meet mine,

Spreading the news,

Clasping fingers,
Feeding now,

First night together,
Neither of us sleep,

So much hope,
So much to share,
My favourite moments.

Our future together,
A new family created,
My favourite moments.

    This is truly lovely, I love the way it’s written and all the things you have managed to fit in about having children. I’m still hoping to have at least one more so will remember these words. Thank you for linking up to Prose for Thought and for all your support xx

      You’re welcome! Thought I’d go for something more uplifting this week! The second they are born truly is the most amazing moment. Makes me want to have another lol! Xx

        How lovely. Made me cry. I never really thought back like that. I know I’m never having any more kids (god the 2 I’ve got have almost send me over the edge at times!) but it’s lovely to think of these special moments. Step back from the day to day chaos and noisy and remember thought first few moments of just US.

    Your poem will bring back lovely memories for everyone that reads it.
    We made the decision not to have any more after number 3 (D) came along, part of me wishes we’d had one more..new babies are scrumptious!

    Love the line about creeping fingers, my two year old still does that.
