Unconditional Love

I have always heard mommies saying they never truly knew unconditional love until they had their first child...  I always thought I understood, but I didn't really. 

I now know what they mean.  I mean, obviously I love my husband unconditionally.  I know God loves me unconditionally.  However, I truly love my daughter in a way I never imagined.  I knew I would love her....but not like this.  There is just this special bond between Abigail and myself.  I know Ryan feels the exact same way.
The miracle of life that is all from God-  It's just amazing to think about. To think this time one year ago, she was just the size of my fist, if even that.  And now she's this precious little girl- growing so fast!!   And she's mine.... she came from me.  I was her vessel (in the words of my mother in law, hehe!).  It's just so amazing- that's the only word I have for it.

Last night I was watching Abigail playing, and she gave me that big gummy smile. I love love love that smile, and it just brought this unmeasurable joy to my heart.  I love her with my entire being.  To know that she was made from Ryan and myself, along with the Hand of God,  is just soooo amazing.  She is the biggest blessing from God, ever.

I love her!!! Forever!!  I pray that she turns out to be an intelligent, strong, independent, loving, and beautiful young woman. 

 Her gummy smile.

Couldn't resist a picture of her fluffy behind!!  :)   She's just such a happy baby (99.9% of the time)!!

  1. It's so true. I had no idea I had such a capacity to love until I had children. And Anna has that green striped dress. Haha.
