the minute she came into the world all other names fell by the wayside. we chose francesca for it's meaning (free) and alma because of her sweet countenance.
how has she been with us for a month? i feel like the map of my life has been redrawn and i am slowly navigating my way through it. elodie felt a little foreign in the first few days after we came home and i'm starting to find my way back to her through each cuddle and kiss.
the birth was perfect and i want to share my thoughts on it before the memories shift. for now, i am bathing in the beauty of this new little spirit.
we’ve all been waiting for you.
your arrival has been marked, has been recorded
in the universe,
in the galaxies,
in all of space,
in all of time.
you come with a birthright, written in love and sung
through all creation in words which promise
that no matter where you’re at,
that no matter who you’re with,
that no matter who you are,
