My Little Monkey

Fills her Mama's heart with so much love and happiness.  How did I ever live a day without her?

I do love my husband.  I dont know how I lived without him either.  But my daughter, she makes me want to be a better woman even more than her Daddy does.  I want to do well in school, in life, because I want Kaia to know that she can.  I want to smile more and frown less because I want her to always smile.  I want to earn loads of money, and now it's not 'cause I'm a greedy miss selfish but because I want to buy her cute clothes, have enough to keep her involved in activities, provide her with a warm, safe, and beautiful home to grow up in, and send her off to college some day (too soon I'm sure), and maybe even throw her a fancy wedding some day.

I want all this for her and more and she isn't even old enough to ask for anything yet.  Im sure Todd and I are in for quite the ride with our sweet angel.

What fills your heart with immeasurable love and joy?

Oh Lord, what a sweet post, Khara! You know you make my heart just melt with half the things you say :)

Today, it was my/my parents' cat. They're out of town and I dropped by to take care of him. All he wanted for me to do was sit at the table and let him nestle in my arms...Simple pleasures, right?

Nice post Khara!

My daugther makes me feel the same way. I can't help but smother her cheeks with kissess...and she is old enough to ask for stuff and I still love her this much! ;)

I could feel the love you have for little Kaia -- it radiates in every word in this post. I too, have never felt a love like before I had my son. It's absolutely incredible. And transcends any and everything.

Exactly that- thinking of my son, seeing my son, holding my son, anything and all of the above if it involves my son. He is my heart and my joy. He and his father are my world and I can't imagine life without them. Sometimes I lie in bed just thinking about our day and I just start laughing because G is filled with so much love and energy and he just makes me smile. And yes, their future school, weddings, etc. will come too soon for me!

Aww! You are such a loving mom! Today I posted about those special moments with our kids that make us laugh out loud. Those kind of moments definitely make me feel joy!

Oh this is such a sweet post. It's true, nothing fills my heart with joy like the love I feel for my two daughters.

The great thing that I've learned from my daughter is that not only have I taught her so much but she's done the same for me - she makes me want to be a better person. I love that you and I have that in common.

You're such a good mama!

Sara said...

love this, mama!

i was super nervous before having Cal, didn't know all the hows or the whats of being a mom, or whether i would be good at it at all.

after she was born, i felt so much love for her that i realized that eventually, all of those other things figure themselves out.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Well said mommy! Our kids are such a huge source of joy, aren't they?

Mamabear said...

awwww!! I feel the same way about my little guy. Motherhood is like a rebirth. You love more than you ever knew you could!!

The Blue Zoo said...

I always say I never knew true love until I had my first son. =)

And now Ive had the chance to experience that 4 times. Amazing!

I love this post because it is very important to remember with all the stress and worry and guilt, they are truly the light of our lives. When I look at my boys faces, I just light up inside and I know I am a very, very lucky woman.

This is a beautiful post. I think our kids open parts of our hearts we didn't know existed. Which makes up for the times they barf all over you.
