not like most

last night i went into your room to watch you sleep. i have done this countless times over the years. this time was different. i willed myself to remember you on your last night of two. and then i went into my room. the moon was so bright shining in through my window. it reminded me of what the midwives always used to tell me each time i was pregnant. most babies come at night when mothers feel safest. more babies come under a full moon. i remember looking out at that giant moon on my last night before you were born. perhaps if you had been like most babies you would have come that night. but my love, you have never ever been like most babies. and that is just one of the many reasons i love you so.
