Rocking My Baby...

This post is kind of random, but I just wanted to share an excerpt from a poem I have come across many times since I've become a Mommy... it almost makes me cry everytime I read it!  One of my most *favorite* things to do is rock my sweet Rosie... nothing feels better than a sleepy baby all snuggly in your arms and drifting off to sleep... and, sadly, I know there will come a day when she will be too "busy" or "big" for me to do so.

 So while I can, I'm gonna rock my baby...  I wouldn't trade those moments for anything in the world. <3

"Babies Don't Keep"

The cleaning and scrubbing
can wait till tomorrow...
For babies grow up,
I've learned to my sorrow.

So quiet down cobwebs,
dust go to sleep...
I'm rocking my baby
and babies don't keep.

-- Ruth Hulbert Hamilton
