Perfect Moment Mondays

I wrote this in my journal last Sunday after our neighborhood picnic. It was a quintessential moment. I had really become someone's mom:

Today while sitting on someone else’s lap, Missy began looking around – agitated – and then began to whimper. I moved into her view. She calmed and smiled.

Later, in her evening bath, she looked up at me and I could see - I mean, really see - love in her eyes.

OH MY GOD.

She is soooo so so cute.

Really, and I don't just say that about everyone's baby...

Oh I have to go look at her again...

I had that happen, too. Isn't it just awesome? The idea that I can comfort and soothe someone just by being me is incredible. Unconditional love, at least at this age, goes both ways.
