May Flower

I press myself against her face as she sleeps. I love her so much I just can't get close enough. Her eyes squeeze tight, full lips in a suckling pout. I breathe in her breath and pray that I never ever forget. This.

She's into everything. Everything.


She can go from sitting to belly to back to belly to sitting to booty scooting at lightning speed to crawling on all fours to where are the outlets!? 'Cause that's where she's headed. Or for my iPhone. Or for clean folded laundry. Or neatly stacked books on a book shelf.

She leans against my side and we watch E! News. She loves my shoes. And earrings. She calls me Mom Mom. A lot.



We go everywhere together. There is no place I want to be witho
ut her.

  8. Into everything. Oh. My. Yes. I am longing for the days back when my Into Everything Child just headed for clean folded laundry. These days it's "if I push this chair over here and climb up there, I wonder what treasure I shall discover?" and "Marker? Meet wall." Oy. Thanks for the sweet reminder to treasure the moment.

  16. That is just so sweet. Libby doesn't call me anything yet, but she does give the best big kisses.
    Girls are just so much fun, that is for sure.

  38. Always the fashionista! It's such a treat to see what she is wearing. There is just something about a mom and her daughter. Enjoy the weekend with your kiddos.

  39. That is so wonderful. It reminds me of me and my Mom. I am her only girl with FOUR brothers! We were pretty much inseparable when I was growing up. Yes, even through high school, I hung out with my mom as much as I did my friends. (It wasn't always perfect - we fought A TON over the things for my debutante season - but still ... I loved being with my mom.) Now I'm am married w/ my own two kids and living in Germany, where we have been for almost two years. And I've only seen my mom once! Ackkk ... no matter what, I still love being with my mom.

    Hope you and your little girl have the same relationship someday!
