I love my daughter. I always knew I would love my children but I never knew how much I would love them. But since I only have one child at the time, I will just say... I love Lyla! Being a mom is one of the most incredible privileges in the world and the feelings that accompany it are indescribable. The amount of love I have for Lyla is just... ahh! I would do anything for this little girl. I love...
- sitting and watching her as she lays on the ground on a blanket and just kicks her legs with her braces on... it looks like she is snowboarding and it is awesome. And she loves it too! She'll just sit there for an hour straight, pumping her legs like it will be her last time so she is getting in as much exercise as she can!
- giving her baths. We don't have a baby bath yet so we just hop in the bath tub with her and hold her while we bathe her. She just stares at whoever is bathing her with this nervous look... not knowing whether or not she should be scared or smiling. I also love when we pour some water over her face to wash the soap off... she will just close her eyes, tighten her body, and fling her arms all over the place as if she is falling off a cliff. It is the cutest thing. So we try to talk to her to let her know that we're there and that she will be just fine and that just seems to calm her right down.
Anyway, I guess I could go on FOREVER with all the things I love. These are all things that most babies probably do, but for some reason I am just fascinated with it all. I just love her and sometimes I find myself almost in tears because I am so overwhelmed with the joy she brings to my life. I love being a mom.
