I pulled this fuzzy little ball over on my lap this morning after Daddy placed her on the bed beside me. Burying my nose in her neck I was taken by the familiar smell of baby.
This morning it was banana and Cheerios, but what about the aroma of grahm cracker? There are other baby scents of course, some not so lovely, but my favorite of all-time is the newly bathed baby smell. This one I haven't sniffed for a while, but hope to this evening:-)
At present there are seven smallish children picking up a sea of legos so both our families can leave the house to enjoy the sun-drenched December day we see peeking in through the blinds. I'm hoping we'll run off a ton of steam, enjoy each other's company,take some pictures, spend a teensie weensie bit of money, and then come home to crash!
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
