The face in the neck

I don’t think there is a sweeter sensation in this life than the feel of a baby’s soft cheeks against your neck. I was with Nic and Jacob for a while this afternoon today and the whole time Jacob was content to be with me. I fed him and changed his diaper and then held him while he fell asleep on my shoulder, his little face against my neck, his little nose and his little coral mouth and his little fingers clutching mine. I remember D. the same way–it was lovely to have her fall asleep on my shoulder and feel her face against my neck. I think the human neck, the curve of it is meant for babies to tuck in their face and fall asleep.
