my baby girl turned two months old on sunday.
she has long dark eyelashes and takes stretching very seriously.
her whole face lights up in big beautiful smiles that make
my heart want to swell and burst (name that movie)
she is still in newborn diapers and loves her carseat.

before i got pregnant i always worried about the dishes and
the laundry and the diapers and all the other awful boring tedious
things moms are required to do. being a mom just seemed like
something you had to do but chose put up with anyway.
but i get it now.
i can't explain it, but it hit me when i was holding my beautiful
perfect sleeping baby girl as close as i could with tears streaming
down my face so full of a love i didn't know was possible.
it's indescribable. there is nothing like it in the whole world.
