I wish I could put into words the light you bring to my world. Sometimes I look at you and I can't even believe this is my life. I get to be your mommy. It's the biggest blessing I've ever been given.
The nights and days before you are a blur. You have put my world into high definition and it seems to have so much more meaning now. Every day I see you changing and growing. I catch glimpses of your daddy and then I see pieces of me and some of Uncle Josh.
You are accomplishing milestones in advanced mode and it's a struggle for me: I catch myself cheering for you with each new accomplishment, but at the same time begging time to slow down. It is so fun to see you playing and discovering, but I already miss the days when you would snuggle my chest and I could just breath you in.
I think every moment we are ever in is going to be absolutely perfect. And although I may never stop wishing for time to stand still, I will relish in each new moment we have together. It is the greatest joy to watch you grow.
I love you.
