Quiet Moments

I love it when the alarm goes off in the mornings. At least for the last couple of months or so. My sweet baby girl wakes up at the same time I do, and greets me with lots of kicks! It is still dark, all is quiet and it's just us (Daddy is still passed out cold). I love to put my hands on my belly and feel her swimming around beneath them. If I press on a specific spot she will get annoyed and kick back over there. It's a silly game we play, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I lie there and thank God for such a wonderful blessing and wonder how I can possibly love her anymore than I already do. I know I will, but it's just that my heart is so full that it's overflowing.

While I long for the day that I can hold her in my arms, I know that I will miss this feeling. I will miss this quiet time together. There will be so many more incredible moments but it will never be quite like this again. Is it silly if that makes me just a little sad? This time is flying by and I just don't want to forget one second of it...

You are so precious. SHE is so precious!! I remember praying on my way to work every morning when I was pregnant with Lilli. I'd rub my belly and talk to her and cry and praise Him for this beautiful gift He had given us. Keep these memories close because I can tell you she is going to want to hear about them when she is older. :o)

Praying for you guys.

No, this is not silly at ALL! I loved being pregnant. It is an amazing feeling knowing that you are the only one who can ever experience that with your child. Such a blessing!
