I've been a little consumed lately with my yard and my garden and, oh yeah, a new baby. I've been wanting to call friends and family; visit neighbors; write thank you notes; send out baby announcements; etc. Instead, I've just been being. Human being.
But I'll start bloggin' and postin' here for reals one of these first days. But today is a short post about my baby.
I love the way she smells.
She smells like Kulani.
But here is the kicker. Ever since I've known Kulani, even before we were married, whenever I got close to him, I thought he smelled like a baby.
"You smell like a baby," I'd tell him.
"Is that good?" He'd ask.
"Yes, very good."
And now Lehua, my newborn baby, is here, and she smells like Kulani. And yesterday I caught Lilia lifting up Lehua's arm and smelling her armpit.
"You're right, Mom. She does smell like Dad."
Bottle that stuff up and it'll sell millions.
