Ellie Sue during her first month of life.
Now my little girl is babbling away, crawling, eating real food, & I swear close to saying Mama. Ok, maybe not. But she's gonna say it. One day. And I cannot wait to hear it.
Life with her is so bittersweet.
Every moment I find myself celebrating the fact that she's older, and mourning it a little too.
Because we take so many photos & my memory is so poor, I'm trying my best to stay on top of organizing them for her.
I hope I am here for as much of her life as possible, but only the Lord knows when I'll be gone. And when I am gone I want her to have pieces of me, and our little life together.
So I write her letters upon letters, I take photo upon photo of our everyday lives together, and I treasure each moment with her, showering her with kisses telling her how much I love her.
There's a line from a Lady Antebellum song I love that says time is a thief I would rob. I sing it over & over sometimes in my head. Time is moving so very quickly. It was just months ago that she was so different.
Life can be very mundane & inconvenient. Sad & frustrating.
I chose to believe it's a miracle. I chose to fight through the fog that tells you that it's typical- and get to the other side where you see everyday moments as sparkling gifts from above.
