A Little Bit of Life Lately

Monday, October 1, 2012


 
There really aren't enough words to describe how much I love being a mom.

In the beginning, I was so sleep deprived it was hard to really get a grasp on just how much love I have for this little human being... I mean, it was instant love the second I saw her... pure, unconditional love. But the love grows more each and every day.

Tonight, Joshua and I were watching a commercial that showed a father and daughter G-chatting while the girl was at college and I looked over to see him with tear-filled eyes. We've become emotional saps over here. I guess that's what parenthood does to you. It really does make you a more sensitive soul.

It's crazy how much love I have for someone I've only seen for 6 weeks and yet known for 10 months now. The love I will feel in 6 months will be insane and the love I feel in 6 years will be intense.

I now know and truly comprehend the depth of God's love for me.

Happy October! :)

Couldn't agree more. My hubby and I were just talking about this.

I say it all the time, but what a gift we've been given.

What a beautiful post. It's so crazy the love you have for someone who you've known for such a short time, but whom you know inside out. Motherhood is such a gift, and one that definitely makes you more sensitive. Quite scary how something so small can mark you so vulnerable with love. X

I love the fourth picture and you can tell that she has your eyes! Too cute!

Ashley said...

And it just gets better!! A year and 8 months later, I continue to be shocked that I could love my girl more than I already did, but it happens! I'm sure we'll be saying it day after day, month after month, year after year!

BTW...your sweet girl is beautiful!!

She looks so content, so happy. Love you Heather.

What a little cutie! I love those first two photos and seeing the little connections that baby E is starting to make :)
And how precious that Joshua was tearing up during the commercial. It just goes to show how much he already cares about his little girl and he can't wait to grow that strong bond.

Heather Leigh Riley said...

Aww! I think the emotional part started early for me considering this post made me "sigh" to the moon and back! You are such a wonderful mom! And once again you ladies are lovely!

Chelsea said...

What a beautiful collage of moments! Eden is such a beauty!

Carlee said...

Love this! My husband already gets teary-eyed thinking about our unborn baby going off to college or getting married. I can't wait until the little one gets here! Only a few more months!

Lottie Simm said...

i can't wait to experience this in november--at the moment i can't imagine it at all.

and eden is adorable :)

Aw yay! You've heard that song, 'I thought I loved you then'...? It works for children too! :) I love that commercial by the way.

Mallorie Owens said...

Oh my gosh I love the pics of Joshua with E...makes my heart sooooo excited for that day! And I LOVE when they get all sappy, I catch Dave tearing up at little things like that and it's oh so sweet. :)

tricia said...

I totally agree, dear friend. Having a child awakes something deep inside you never knew existed and it's like your emotions are on the brink of bubbling over at any given moment. <3

Jen said...

Hey there! Your little one is a doll. I have an almost 9 year old and a 2 and a half year old. It just gets better! Except for the back talking part that starts around 5! ;) haha I just came across your blog and love it. I have been on a break from blogging for a bit just trying to decide if it was even for me. But after reading some of yours and looking back through all my olds posts and pics of my babes I am looking forward to sticking with it. Just wanted to say hey! :))

Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
