this moment

If there's one thing I've learned from parenting so far, it's that you savor every moment. Time passes us by so quickly, and seeing a baby grow before your very eyes only magnifies that. Right now, one of Jaqs' favorite places to cuddle up is right up on mommy or daddy's chest, and I soak it up every single time. I breathe in her precious baby smell and try to lock it away to a place in my mind that I'll never forget. I admire her tiny fingers and toes...memorizing them because they'll never be this little again. I stroke her soft little head, and kiss her cheeks and her perfect, angelic lips a thousand times over...because someday, she won't let me do that anymore. I never want to forget these fleeting moments...
For they are the sweetest of my life. I feel overwhelmingly blessed in this moment...

This moment where schedules don't matter, the crying has long been forgotten, and our world seems to be in perfect harmony. This moment where I cry the happiest tears because I'm overcome with the love I have for you, baby girl. There's truly nothing better than being YOUR momma, Jaqsy girl. I'll love you forever.






.....now, will you go to bed just a little easier tonight? :)

So sweet. Definitely enjoy and soak in all those sweet newborn cuddles. They are tiny newborns for SUCH a short time.

And stop looking so great all the time. You're making me look bad. ;) The picture of you and Jaqs is beautiful.
