How I love you baby girl.
I love ....
how you wake up smiling & say
when you come running for a hug.
how excited you are to sit down & color pictures with me.
to hear you say to daddy - while hugging me"that's my mommy!"
to watch you eat & listen to you hum when something tastes soooo good.
to listen to you try to pray over your food.
seeing your eyes light up & watch you go running to the door when you hear daddy is coming .
listening to you sing along with Mary Mary in the car.
watching you spin & twirl in a new frilly dress.
having you climb on my lap to sit with me and watch Cinderella, for the 100th time that day.
to see you sing worship songs - loud - at church.
when you come running to me to kiss a boo boo & wipe your face
hearing you call for me " Come mommy, Let's go!"
watching you snatch cookies & cereal - when you think I'm not watching, waiting or looking.
how hard you try to explain something to me in your gibberish.
the sound of your laugh while we're playing.
when you type while I'm trying to blog. LOL
to see you dance when Sesame Street comes on.
watching you do the "pee pee in the potty" dance.
to see you pretend to read my books.
when you want to help me cook or bake.
to watch your lips curl when you smile wide.
the shape of your face.
the curl in your beautiful hair.
the flecks of gold & amber in your eyes.
the dimple in your right cheek.
the feel of your hands touching my face.
the feeling that overcomes me when you squeeze me tightly around my neck.
feeling my heart melt when you kiss me.
watching you grow & learn - even though my heart aches to see my baby isn't a baby anymore.
Oh.... how I love all of you... and I hope you love me too.
