Frozen Moment

Its 5.40pm and Ayla is asleep.

She’s lying across my body, legs wedged between my hips and the couch, her head nestled between my arm and my chest.

She’s wearing a white beanie with tiny pink polka dots, magenta leggings with a skirt attached, a white long-sleeved top with flowers on the front, striped pink butterfly socks on her feet and baby-pink knitted socks on her hands.

She’s been like this for nearly three, beautiful hours.

But, Ayla’s going to wake up soon… I can see her eyes fluttering and she’s starting to squirm.

And when she does it will be back to reality; bath-time, pyjamas, dinner and bed, but I feel blessed to have shared this special time with my baby.
