to the babe who made me a mama

22 months ago, bub-hub and i drove to the hospital for the last time as a family of 2.  22 months ago, i sat in a hospital room, watching reruns of friends, or maybe Seinfeld, waiting for my sleeping pill to kick in so i could sleep away my nervous jitters.  22 months ago, i had a quick labor that ended in an emergency c-section, resulting in the delivery of my sweet, 5 lb 14 oz baby girl.

i never knew i could love so big.  every day, my heart doubles in size. 

i can't get enough hugs, sticky finger high fives or slobbery kisses.  i wouldn't trade a single lost hour of sleep, food stained shirt, or extra pound (or 10....) for anything in the world.  this babe has taught to love unconditionally and i'm so beyond thankful for her. 

whenever my mom rescues me, she always asks me "wouldn't you do the same for your baby?" and i think, yes, i would, a million times over, again and again. 

this is love. and she's our everything. 

hunting eggs with emma grace

eg loves putting things away. cleaning up at the end of the day is her favorite thing. who knew putting dozens of duplos back into a bag could be so fun?  even if i don't understand it, it's a perfect trait to have when it comes to easter egg hunts.  she's been training for this day for a while, and she didn't even know it.  

with the help of a few cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles and parents, somehow, eg managed to find a few eggs. we stuffed them with gold fish, cheerios and animal crackers. yummy yummy!
