A few mornings ago, while cuddling together in bed, I looked over at your cute little face and felt a flood of emotions. It was one of those moments where I was overwhelmed with love and gratitude. I'm your mama. You're my baby. I never forget that honor and privilege, but I don't always focus on it, either. That morning, however, it hit me. Hard. And I just wanted to scoop you up and snuggle with you forever. Unfortunately, you're a little too squirmy these days to allow for long snuggles. So I made do with a few seconds before you rolled over and started clawing and pinching at my face. I couldn't help but grin, even though my hair is an inevitable casualty of your pulling.
And then you looked into my eyes and smiled back at me.
Moments like this are so precious. Too precious to put into words, really, but I just had to try.
I love you baby girl. So, so much.
