Contrary to time always flying by, it actually seemed to stand still for a brief moment on the Atlantic coast this past month. I will never forget our time together on the beach that evening.Β 

The sun was setting behind the clouds, as it was nearing dinner time, but we really had nowhere to be… You and I lounged on the beach chair while your Daddy and sister played in the waves. I was relaxed while nursing you to a live performance of nature’s soundtrack; the seagulls were squealing, the ocean was roaring, and I could even hear the swift breeze sweeping grains of sand across our belongings. My eyes danced between watching your wispy red hairs blow in the wind, and your sister giggling as she kicked the heavy sand along the shoreline. I gazed at your naked round belly rise and fall against the waistline of the little blue swim trunks you wore, as well as your cute stubby toes that repeatedly curled into the bright beach towel fibers; it was as if the perfect rhythm of your body had put me into a complete trance. My body was still, but my mind was so alert. With a deep inhale, it was in that stillness that I could actually feel your big brother’s presence surround us like a fine mist blanketing our skin. Tears fell as I embraced it all; nature is funny like that baby boy, as it can somehow make you feel extra close to heaven at times … 

The sun was low, the waves were loud, the weight of your warm body was simply serene; it was in that moment our family felt most complete.  #FamilyOfFive

I love you, my Artie 🧸
