love is...

...watching you smile in your sleep and wonder what you're dreaming about.
...feeding you before we feed our own faces. (Better yet, love is daddy feeding mommy, while mommy feeds Mia. That is how your very first feeding went down, and many more times in the first couple weeks of your life!)
...bath time, story time, nap time, etc. It's the little things!
...not being able to hold back the laughs as you're scolded ("No, Mia!") and you look at me/us with a straight face and shake your head, no!
...surviving a sleepless night without throwing you out the window. Kidding! Sort of. But seriously? I would NEVER!
...cheering over a poopy diaper. Constipation has brought on a whole new meaning of misery in the parenting world!
...is giving you the remote control. Because daddy won't even share that with mommy.
...open mouthed, slobbery kisses. The BEST kind of kisses!
...is letting you tear a tissue into a thousand tiny pieces, just because we know it will make you happy!
...changing your diaper before we use the bathroom. Even if that means mommy almost doesn't make it to the bathroom, ah!
...watching your reaction when trying different foods. Of course we have our fun and have tested lemons and limes, pickles, etc. But we also give you (tiny tastes of) ice cream, brownies, pumpkin treats, etc. See? Love!
...cheering every time you reach a milestone (while crying inside at the same time)! We love to watch you grow!
...picking you up when you are crying and snuggling you close. You always stop crying, lay your head on our shoulders and soak up the love. I'm pretty sure our hearts feel like they will burst every. single. time.
... us + you.

P.S. Love is also voting for Mia ;) Unless you don't think she should be Gerber's model baby (ha!)?

"surviving a sleepless night without throwing you out the window. Kidding! Sort of." <--- HAHA! I can SO relate- I'm sure MOST mom's can.

This was really sweet. She will love reading this when she's older.

Tearjerker much? This was just the sweetest. I've only imagined what it would be like to have a child. Just when you thought you could only love so much, here comes little feet to make you pour out so much more.

Love that plug-in at the end!

Oh, I love this! I think every mom can relate to every single one of these! Terrin has his own remote now that we replaced our DVD player. We took the batteries out and now he can have it all he wants.

"not throwing you out the window.." I read it out loud to my mom, so hysterical.

Mia is the best baby.. and when she's not sleeping at night just call me and say, "she's all yours.." heaven only knows I'm awake.
