This daughter of mine has stolen my heart. Although this weekend hasn't all been cuddles and kisses (Have you ever been around a one year old who is teething?) it has made my heart fall even deeper in love with my baby girl. She is saying so many words and has a laugh that makes me giggle! She is so passionate about life. She feels deeply. She never does anything half-heartedly-- this includes getting up from naps. She is not one of those little sweethearts who wakes up cooing. She wakes up screaming like she has been wronged. How dare you not anticipate that she would be up soon and waiting by her side to pick her out of the crib? Today she did the usual routine, but I was feeling a little grumpy because I had just closed my eyes to take a little nap myself. I think I even curled my lip a little when I went to pick her up out of her crib. But then it happened. She put her arms around my neck nuzzled that wild head of hair into my face. I knew I could no longer be grumpy. I brought her over to my bed and we curled together in a ball and took a nap, just like we used to do when my little peanut was first born. And all was right with the world again.


  1. Love it!! Always feel exactly what you are talking about. . . .just a few more minutes of nap time Isaac and mom would get a few extra winks. But his greeting of "Mama!" as soon as I walk in the door melts my heart and my own needs of sleep for the time. Off to the kitchen for milk and a snack with my "big" boy!

  2. Hey Mel,

    Thanks for sharing. They teach us so much and it's funny how children are always optimistic....they can do wrong, be corrected and then move on to the next thing:).
