A very sappy post.

Have you ever looked down at your child and it just blows your mind?

Woah. I'm a mother. I cannot believe it.

I'm quietly nursing my wee babe to sleep for the night, such a precious time between us. Wrapped so snug, heavy breathing with eyes just as heavy. With each passing minute, she nurses softer and slower until she drifts off to sleep. I love this.

I can't imagine her at 6 months or 6 years or 16 years. But I'll be her mother forever. Someday we'll discuss how to braid hair. Then how to put on make-up. Then how to pick out the right dress. What will that be like?! Right now, all I can picture is deciding which hat matches the best and when she will take her next nap.

I'm a huge baby about kids growing up. Truthfully, I can't wait until she starts solids, learns to crawl, and can play with toys. But really? I cant imagine my little girl turning into a.. Well.. Little girl.

..sniff.. :(

And with that, my baby is fast asleep in my arms; she's the most beautiful thing in my life. I'm choosing to live in every moment of every season. And this season? Why, it's full to the brim with as many snuggles and kisses as I can squeeze into each day. Being a mother is the best.


  1. Sweetest. Post. Ever. Tearing up over here! Ahem. ;)

  2. Sooooo beautiful. I absolutely cannot wait to experience this for myself. I wanted to cry after your status about waking up and snuggling with Ad every morning and her being so happy to see you every morning. So sweet!

  3. such a cute post! :) i love it!

  4. I can't imagine Elijah growing up. I have the thought about it, but to be honest it scares me. The world is already crazy, can't think of how it will be when he's older.
    I love this post though. It makes you a great mother. You love your baby girl so much! :-)

  5. Love the post and agree, being a mother is the best! :)
