Love is

My sweet girl is just so full of love.
Watching a child express their love for others is such a blessing and a big eye opener. 

I never knew just how much love my heart could hold, until I became a mom. 
So many people talk about having children like it's a bad thing. You want to know what true love is? Have a child. They don't care how much money you have, what car you drive, or how you look. They truly just love you. The unconditional love between you and your child is priceless and lasts forever ❤️

Love is...loving someone you never met.
Love is...going through terrible amounts of pain to meet that person, and would do it over and over again. 
Love is...hearing a tiny cry and somehow you know exactly what to do to help. 
Love is...crying as your family and friends meet the new love of your life. 
Love is...falling in love with your husband all over again when you see him become a father. 
Love is...staying awake all night, just to watch them sleep. 
Love is...putting someone else's needs before your own.
Love is...constantly worrying if you're doing everything right. 
Love is...learning to live life with the new addition but quickly forget what life was like before. 
Love is...learning to work as a team and figure out parenthood together. 
Love is...watching your baby grow and discover the world. 
Love is...not wanting your baby to grow...but also excited to see them grow, all at once.
Love is...holding a tiny hand and will never be the first to let go.
Love is...letting her take those first steps, knowing she will fall. But you'll catch her.
Love is...watching her walk and discover the world from a whole new view.
Love is...seeing your daughter smile and wave at people, and watching her light up their world.
Love is...a tiny hug, a little kiss,  a beautiful smile.
Love is...those silly little giggles to full belly laughs.
Love is...two eyes and a heartbeat.

My daughter has shown me love, in more ways than I ever thought possible. And I want to always show her love in more ways than she ever thought possible.
Every single day my love for her only grows.
