it is so crazy that she used to be in my belly. I seriously did not believe people when they told me that I would love my baby more than my dog. which is funny to me now. I absolutely love my puppy but I definitely love her more. she is so delightful. the happiest being ever (aside from recently teething). I genuinely thought that having a baby would be like baby-sitting every day. sure there are days I want to be by myself or just with Ben, but I treasure my time with her. usually sundays are hard because she goes to our church kids class, naps all the way home and continues napping until we head out for a parenting class that we are taking until june. I hardly see her! and I would've thought (pre-baby) "oh a day to myself awesome!" but now I miss her sweet smiles and snuggles, the way she's exploring the whole world and putting everything in her mouth. she makes the most fun noises and now she's eating solid food, it's fun to see what she will like and not like. I love hearing her babble and talk and tell us about her day. I love when I make her giggle. understanding a parent's love is so deep. and I couldn't be happier. I can't imagine adding another child (someday - no I am not pregnant) and loving them the same amount! do I have that much love? I sure do hope so. holy smokes this motherhood thing is awesome.
