This conversation about my baby’s soul and my mother 6th sense is sponsored by Baby Jack Blankets, which is one of Lowell’s very favorite things.
I knew within minutes of meeting him that he was different. Obviously, all my children are each their own person, but the contrasts were easier to notice between boy and girl.
When I was pregnant with Lowell, we wanted to be surprised by his gender at birth. I spent a lot of time wondering if he’d be just like his big brother if he was a boy, or just like his sister if a girl.
It was clear to me from our introduction in that labor and delivery room, though, that he is, just like the other two, his very own person. There are similarities, of course. But there is something in this little guy that is unique to only him. I can’t describe it. It’s not tangible. It’s just a feeling I get when I hold him close, when we share a quiet moment, or a game of giggles and peekaboo.
He looks so much like his brother sometimes…
And then so much like his sister.
He has his daddy’s smile, for sure…
and maybe my eyes. Definitely my determination.
But his soul? That’s all him.
This jolly, thoughtful, loving, quiet presence – that’s all Lowell. That’s that something I can’t ever put into words, but, parents, you know what I’m talking about, right?
Was there just a…. feeling you got about your babies when you first met them? Just a little spark of their soul that you felt? Am I crazy for thinking I can feel this sixth sense?
