Happiness Makes the Heart Ache

2 Mar

Ache…

As I watch Lila play in the evenings I long for her to stay this age forever. I love to see the wonderment, pride, and enthusiasm on her face as she discovers new things. Then, I realize that in each stage of her life there are going to be these wonderful moments that I simply want to bottle up and keep forever.

My heart aches for the moment because I am so happy I don’t want it to end. Only to realize upon waking each day that it has gotten better than I could have imagined.

I will take pictures of these moments, snuggle you close to me, breathe in your sweet aroma, tickle your tummy and toes, and play peek-a-boo to no end. I will cherish these moments I have with you.
