Amazing

The other day I was rocking with Isabella in my glider and she just put her head down on my shoulder and just looked up at me with her big eyes and I was just amazed. Amazed that God has allowed me to have such a gift even though I probably don't deserve it. Amazed that we survived her first year relatively unscathed and that we're both thriving. Amazed that even though there are days when she drives me bat shit crazy, my love for her never ever diminishes, although my patience might.


So I snuggled her, because these days running (yes running, and soon after falling) have pushed snuggles to her back burner. I'm sure I'll continue to be amazed by this little girl for as long as I live.

Why do the babes get so big? Seems like only yesterday they needed the snuggles and now it's like they're getting to big :'(

I take the snuggles when I can too.

Snuggles are the best. You are right those days go by so fast.

It's important to keep moments like this in your pocket so that you can pull them out when you're not feeling so sentimental or when the everyday frustrations of parenting come up.

Glad you could be present enough to grab on tho this moment!

I hate that the snuggles are on the backburner here too! When he wants too I eat it up and usually cry lol, I can't help it!

Love the line ... 'Amazed that even though there are days when she drives me bat shit crazy, my love for her never ever diminishes, although my patience might."

Sounds just like my life!

What a beautiful baby you have!

It's not fair how fast they grow! I made the mistake of watching Lillian's birth video last night. Holy crying!

Isabella is so pretty in her old age! ;)
