The mother rock

I wonder if there is some kind of innate side to side sway ingrained in mothers to soothe babies.  I have been babysitting Zaka for the past hour – as he cried.  Grace came home and took him from me, still crying. 
There we stood talking and I realized we were rocking from side to side in perfect time as Zaka settled down in his mom’s arms.

    We are perfectly and wonderfully made down to this marvelous detail. Sometimes even when I see a baby from afar, I catch myself beginning to do that very same thing. Quite amazing.
