She is Love

As my precious MaryJane turns two weeks old today, it already seems like she's been in my life forever. I can't imagine a day without her, or what my life was like before she was here. It's been the hardest but most rewarding experience so far and I have already learned so much! I lose hours of the day because I can't stop staring at her and studying her little face. She makes so many expressions and she just loves to gesticulate with those hands! I understand now why people say that you don't know love until you have a child.

The cloth diapers are going so well, I honestly find them to be easier than the disposables I used the first few days until she passed all of her meconium. The breastfeeding has been more of a challenge, but we are getting the hang of it more and more each day.

I heard this song the other day and it made me sob because it's so sweet and tender and it makes me think of the love I have for my little girl.

This is a precious post! Experiencing the love of being a parent makes God's love for us even more dear, doesn't it? Have fun delighting in your little girl--Keep in mind that God feels the same over you. I'll see you tomorrow--I'm bringing dinner over! :)
