just look at her sitting there all precious and such. she sure knows how to tug at this mama’s heart strings! each and every morning miss stella sits right at the edge of our bathroom and watches me get ready. her groggy morning eyes are immediately glued to me as i act like a crazed woman, rushing from hair to makeup, and back to hair again. from the moment that hairdryer gets turned on, to the last wave of my mascara brush, she watches so intently, and patiently, too. it fascinates me so, how she sits there, quietly rubbing the silk on her blankie whilst sucking on her favorite paci. i often think to myself, i wonder what she is thinking? probably that i should have woken up sooner; hence, the need for rushing. in moments like these, i cannot help but appreciate that i had a part in making this tiny human...this sweet, little audience member that can now watch her mama get ready, and crawl, and throw balls, and giggle uncontrollably, and eat brie cheese like a big girl! it boggles my mind that she's getting so big and overwhelms me with joy that she is happy, and that she is healthy, and that she is mine. i am so looking forward to getting home and snuggling into that little crevice of her neck, i can hardly stand it!
