Days Like This

I love days like this.

I love sitting on the couch with Rosie and nursing her. I love seeing her thighs and cheeks fill out and I love that she saves her best smiles of the day for me.

9 weeks.

I love watching the girls create little worlds of their own out of Legos, blocks, Play-Doh, and cardboard boxes. I love hearing their words to each other in their pretend play dialogue. It's all, "Oh, yes dear!" "That is so wonderful darling!" "Sweetie, can I please have that?"

I really do love that I have 4 amazing little spirits that I get to know. I love that they are best friends. I love how smart and creative they are - they are always surprising me with their inquisitions and explanations on every little thing.

I love that Roo insists on wearing her pink tutu at all times. Even over her jammies. And especially with nothing else.

I love that I get to be their mom - that I am the one they want to kiss them at night and the one they come to when their feelings are hurt.

Yep. Hands down. This job rocks.

Do you ever feel a little guilty sending E off to work knowing he's going to miss all this and knowing he'd really love to be there? I love being a mom but sometimes I feel bad for my husband because he has to work.

So sweet, and I so share these feelings with my own. Seeing that photo of your little Rosie is going to send me over the edge! She is darling. Pulls at my baby itch heartstrings. ;)
