Sleeping Babies

Rocking now toddler Emma on a quiet day.

I can’t believe how fast time flies. It seems like yesterday I was rocking this little girl the day she came home from the hospital. Now she will be 18 months next week.

Being a mom has taught me how much love you can truly have for another person. It wasn’t easy to feel that way though. My daughter and I have had some interesting ups and downs but in the end I love her and she loves me. She doesn’t have many words yet but I can hear her love for me when she says “mama” with a smile in the morning when I get her out of her crib and tender moments like these where she fell asleep in my arms. She is my love.

So I guess I just wanted to say don’t let life steal these moments from you. Even if you don’t have kids, there are precious moments that are lost if we are not aware. I’m a busy mom, wife, daughter, and friend but those are the things that make my life whole. I would not be me without them.

So next time you are in a hurry driving to work or cleaning the millionth mess that day, stop and look out the window. There be something waiting to be shown to you.
