I can't believe how fast time is flying by. Everyday I see a change in Scarlett that makes it all the more real that my baby girl is growing up. Just the other day I was talking to her and she smiled at me for the first time and my heart was putty in her hands.
Even though Scarlett has only been here for a month it seems like she has been here forever and I couldn't imagine my life without her and my boys. When I lost my mom I lost that mother/daughter connection and now the good Lord has blessed me with Scarlett and she has helped fill that void. My heart will always ache for mom, but now I can build those precious memories with my own daughter. I want my mom to be proud of me and I want to raise her with the morals that was instilled in me. I can proudly say that I want to be just like my mom!
There are many things I that I have fallen in love with over the past month and here are a few:
I love it when she squeeks in her sleep and the smiles when she first wakes up.
The way she snuggles in my chest when she is wanting to nap.
The sweet smell of her skin and hair after a warm bath.
Playing dress up (I think it's more me than her :)
