There is something perfectly magical about babies. Each day when I get home from work, I cannot wait to pick up the 9 pound bundle of speechless joy. She smiles sometimes, does not maintain eye contact, and sometimes cries, but she is still the most soothing thing there is. When I am stressed, if I get to hold her for just a few minutes, all the stress is magically gone.
The 9 pound bundle of joy is my niece who is 7 weeks old. What is it about a baby that makes everything seem better?
Have you felt the pure joy of holding a baby? Do you feel like life is less stressful after being able to cuddle with a little one?
