Could Not Ask for More

Signs of spring are in the air, the days have more hours of sunshine, birds are singing and life is just freakin' awesome!

I don't know how to describe how I feel lately other than blessed. I am just so in love and so grateful for my life. I feel like the luckiest person alive to be the mother to this beautiful little girl.

I know every parent feels this way about their child (or at least I hope every parent does) but Natalie is the best thing ever. She's the sweetest and most lovable child. Last night she was looking at her book with opposites in them and she pointed at the girl with a sad face. Matt said "sad" and  made a sad face and she ran over and gave him a big hug.

Either she is truly compassionate or has one helluva memory. When she first got the book about two or three weeks ago I told her hugs made people happy when they were sad, and demonstrated by making her hug me. I only did this a few times in a row that one day so I am shocked she remembered that.

She's just such a joy and pleasure to be around. I wouldn't trade this little life of mine for anything in the world. I love our simple days of chasing birds, playing at the park, splashing in puddles after the rain and just being together.

No other happiness in the world could ever compare to the happiness she brings to me. I'm all about parents having a life outside of parenthood and doing things for themselves, but this whole mothering thing has consumed me whole. I love it and this is all I want.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I feel the same way about Chloe right now. I always love her and think she's amazing, but she's so cute/smart/funny/etc to me these days that it's like the sun shines out of her ass lol.

That's so sweet she remembered to give a hug when someone is sad!
(Also the weather in England is f*cking with people's emotions - yesterday it was so sunny for England, no clouds or anything, and wasn't even that cold, then all of a sudden out of nowhere bloody snow was pelting down. Glad it's nice where you are!)

She is so adorable! I have enjoyed watching her grow since she was a newborn here on your blog.

So glad your heart is full :) Makes life grand indeed!
