Baby Girl is constantly telling us how much she loves us. I will hear...."mom, your the best!" about 5 times in a 30 minute period. Often out of the blue she will turn to me or The Man, grab our faces and say"I love you" and its usually followed up with a kiss on the nose or the cheek. Sometimes its even a "I love your hair!" and she'll kiss that too! :) I love these moments. They help reinforce what Im doing here as a mother and the sweet spirit that was given to me to protect.
Don't get me wrong though...she has her moments where I want to pull my hair out..she's got some attitude and has the best dirty look I have ever seen. But on the whole Baby Girl is a joy. Right before I sat down to write this we were snuggling on the couch watching the tinker bell movie and she turned to me with a big grin on her face, wrapped her arms around my neck and said, "mom...your my best friend!' She melts my heart and I wish she would feel this way about us forever. Of course, I'm not so naive as to think she will...I have huge anxiety about the teen years. But until then I'm going to absorb every hug, kiss and happy minute we have together.
