Even though she has only been here for 3 weeks, it feels like she’s been here forever. Bryan and I look at her today in amazement, that this little bean could change our lives so quick and with such force. It’s true what they say of not knowing ‘a certain love’ until you know the love of your child and I can vouch for that. I snuggle her soft, warm body up to mine and just breathe in the sweetness of her freshly lotioned skin and soak up these tiny moments with this little girl that I call mine.
She’s mine (well technically ours if you ask Bry…) and that blows my mind.
We created her. We created and brought to life this tiny human being that looks to us for all her needs, wants, and anything under the sun she needs. We will care for her and teach her the life lessons we’ve come to learn. We will struggle and make mistakes and I can only hope she can forgive us for the embarrassment that we we will undeniably cause her throughout her life.
I’m sure as time goes on, that this day will slowly fade to a distant memory of a date, but right now I hold it close to my heart as the date that our baby girl could have come if she wasn’t so excited to see her mama and daddy.
She’s already surprising us and doing things on her own time and I can only imagine this is a sign to the little spitfire she will continue to be.
