On the other hand...

[first thank you so much for what you said :-)]

I have such an amazing daughter!! Really. I mean it would have been just enough that she was my daughter. On that account she doesn't have to be any more, but not only am I so lucky that this little girl is my daughter, but beyond being my daughter she is totally amazing!

And there's cuteness like in the shower, how she puts her hand to her liquid soap and "presses" it (I'm sure it won't be long before she figures that one out.. lol) and then does the motion of cleaning herself. Or bringing me my glasses so I can find her her bottle. Or carrying the heavy mineral water bottle so I can fill her bottle. Or the kisses she now gives, well not so much as a kiss, but you ask her for a kiss, and she brings her open mouth to you :-). [but only one at a time! ask for another and you won't get]. Or how she now waves hello and goodbye. Or bringing me toilet paper while I'm at the toilet. Well I should add that she seemed to be aiming it between my legs... And then one day when I was wiping myself after a trip to the loo, she had such a look on her face as if to say - that's how it is done. notes taken.. Or climbing into the chair where she eats (a booster on a regular chair). Or... could fill a page or two, should probably stop here..

And I look at her and can't believe she is mine. She is my little daughter! Don't know if it's because she so does not look like me or if because while I always wanted to be a mother, there was a dark time of too many years when I thought that would never happen. But she is here, and while I hardly have time for myslef, I do have my little Butterfly!

And I am thinking very much of number two (heck I even have a name, boy and girl!). And I've heard how the heart expands and all when you have that second (third, fourth, tenth....) child. But right now my little heart feels like it is almost going to explode from the love I have to her, and how can there be room to love another..

Your little Butterfly is very clever and awfully sweet! Being a mom is so great! And good luck with thinking of number 2.

Such a sweet post. Butterfly is a definite cutie! And a little helper too.

If you are feeling it, maybe you are ready for the next kid.

Good Luck!

Billy, I tried to email but couldn't for some reason. Hopefully it will show up here.

I've heard that too, and I feel what you're feeling every day. And I wonder also, how can there be room in my heart for more love - but there must be. I loved reading your list :)

When my son was 5 months old, another, more experienced mom said to me, "I bet you can't imagine loving him anymore than you do today but you will." She was right. Enjoy your little girl and the family you have made. The heart definitely expands when it comes to children.

Thanks for your comment and good wishes for me for 2012. I hope you will have your second baby in your arms next year (and am sure that you will have more than enough love to go around)!
