A year ago Alivia was just a desire of my heart. I so wanted to be a Momma Bear. I remember waiting each month just to see if I could be pregnant. Now, a year later I sit here holding a little girl that takes my breath away.
Being a full time wife/momma is a big adjustment. There are days that pass by when I feel like I haven't left the couch all day. There are days I feel guilty for not putting the dishes away or letting the clean laundry sit in the dryer, but today I don't feel guilty.
The dishes are in the sink, the laundry in the dryer, the bathroom needs to be cleaned... big time, and today I am just enjoying my little girl. She is starting to smile more everyday and I don't want to miss a single one.
Her smile makes every stretch mark, flabby belly, swollen finger, dirty dish, unfolded laundry, and guilty feeling disappear.
Enjoy little smiles today.
