Do you know how much I love you? Oh, I don't know that you do! It's a whole awful lot and comes from a place deep in my heart that will never run dry, a place where more and more love is constantly churned out in an infinite supply just for you. Hopefully you can feel this love as I hold you close, allowing it so spill out from my pores and travel straight into yours. Does that sound pretty magical? Trust me, it is.
Even with all of that love it can be hard for me to find time to sit and write these days as you are keeping me busy. You love to sleep connected to Mama, but even that sleep is hard to come by these days as you like to fight it with all the might you have in that little bitty body of yours and if I try to get you asleep without a swaddle than I can just about count on you waking up pretty quickly. So, we went ahead and purchased swaddles of the next size up because the rate you are growing is just about as rapid as the speed you move your little fire-starter feet at when you rub them together and that's pretty fast! Don't worry, I don't think we will be swaddling you when you are five years old, but right now we are doing whatever we need to so that you will stay happy and feel safe and comfortable enough to sleep. Maybe when you are older we will just use your blanket to roll you up like a burrito, Mama likes to sleep like that too.
You are still just as silly as can be and definitely keep me laughing. Just when things get hard and the day starts to wear on me, you will surprise me with a big gummy smile or laugh and I can feel the stress fall away. You are tricky like that my sweet girl, and tricky with your fake coughs too. It is very clear too me when you are faking it or when they are real and I am sure you keep up with the fake ones just to keep me smiling, as each time you let one out I give you a sideways glance and a smirk, causing your face to light up with a smile. And oh those smiles. Your smiles are the best and lately you have been throwing a little raspberry making tongue action into the mix as well. Yes, very silly my dearest little gal, as silly as they come I am sure.
