Look what you did. You made me fall in love with you and now it’s all over!” R Bertolli

Ever since giving birth, I’ve had the most incredible realizations.  They hit me at night in bed, or in the most unexpected moments watching my baby daugther smile and laugh.  Last night I shuttered momentarily, because the realization passed into my mind that one day, I will be gone, leaving behind this little person that I love so much.  That one day, we will be separated.

The first months of having the little baby at home were very hard, but as time is passing, I’m realizing I’ve become so much more patient.  I feel this overwhelming sense of love for this new person.  So much so that the frustration has almost completely disappeared.  The late night feedings that used to drive me crazy before are just part of loving her now.  Her crying and tiny little complaining sounds that used to make me throw up my hands almost make me smile now, because I am so thankful she is in my life.  Her needs are a part of me.

I told her last night, “Look what you did.  You made me fall in love with you and now it’s all over!”  She just stared at me for a second, and then smiled at my dramatics!
