...the things in life that bring just this...

Monday, September 26, 2011


today you fell asleep on my chest as we were lying on our yellow couch. you haven't done that since you were a newborn. i didn't realize how much i had missed it. you were so precious with your eyes closed and your sweet little breath. and i laid there watching the light come through the window and your dad, on the other side, sat reading a book of short stories. and we both looked at you and at each other and shed a few tears. tears for the happiness you have brought to our life. tears for how quickly you have grown but how strong and perfect and beautiful you have become. tears for the overwhelming love inside us that needed to escape.

grow, our darling little girl. but just not too fast please.
