Audrey and I had a good day together today. I don’t know if it’s a case of “absence makes the heart grow fonder” since we haven’t seen each other as much now that I am at work and she is in daycare, or just her getting bigger and much more fun, or me feeling especially lucky to have her lately due to her fast-approaching birthday. Maybe it’s all of the above. I can’t explain how my heart just fills with love for that little girl and I thank God for her every single day. I can’t remember life before her and I can’t imagine life without her.
She is growing up so fast and learning so many new things. Today she started saying “woof woof!” I totally didn’t see that coming. She is getting a sixth tooth, and is looking less and less like the itty bitty newborn she once was. She’s actually becoming a toddler. I am excited to be able to do more things with her as she gets older, but I’ll be honest, I sometimes miss her newborn days. I barely remember them sometimes and that makes me sad.
