Have you heard the saying, love comes softly?
Well, I'm convinced that it does.
As I hold my Sweet Pea in my arms this morning, I am at a loss for words to explain the gratitude in my heart that God entrusted me with this beautiful little girl.
She is simply amazing.
She is making more and more eye contact.
She is reaching out for me.
She still gets overwhelmed, but her curiosity gets the best of her.
She is more relaxed.
Natalie is beginning to show her personality.
She is shy. Inquisitive. Lovely. Delicate. Tender hearted.
She makes the cutest expressions.
I think I see a twinkle in her eye.
She is still reserved, yet there are times when she cracks herself up.
She has the sweetest, lightest laugh imaginable.
We have our special moments.
I look at her and imagine how much more she is going to blossom.
And I think to myself-- I get to see this. Live this. Be a part of this.
Natalie may not have grown in my tummy this past year but she has certainly grown in my heart.
In just four days Natalie will get to see her Daddy and meet her siblings.
I am counting down the days.
