Christmas Dolly

It hasn't worn off, the whole having a daughter thing. She's seriously like my little friend. I won't even realize it but she'll be sitting next to me just hugging my arm like a koala on a tree. I'm so used to her touch it's a part of me. My skin is her skin.

We lie in bed face to face nose to nose and her big blue eyes tell stories without need of mouth, and she looks into mine, and understands my soul.

She loves me. She tells me so all the time.

I love her more than even I could know.

  8. I love my son so much but I can't believe that I have a daughter inside of me, and that she'll be here in just a few days!

    I pray every day for a relationship like you two have.

  9. She is incredibly beautiful. And her eyes do tell her own sweet little story, don't they?

    She looks so much like you! You two seem like soul mates.

  13. I'm always amazed at the wisdom I can see coming out of those beautiful blue eyes.

    She has an old soul in a child's body all wrapped up in whimsy and love.

    It's perfect.

  17. i am on this same page with my little girl it feels so good to feel this way with her when I worried about having a little girl. My only worry is setting boundries as she gets older and will need me as a mother not just a friend.

  19. It's so funny. I have three daughters, and I love each and every one of them so very dearly. But my boy...he's by little man. Tells me so all the time.

    PS. She is beautiful.

  22. I hope someday I get to experience this. And ivy's hair is so long! She looks so grown up, but not TOO much so. She's still too little for that :). Your words are so powerful, Steph.

  24. Oh, I think I have a lump in my throat now. Ivy is such a sweet little girl and I can't believe how fast she is growing, wow!

    Yes, a koala, that is exactly how my girls are. They cling, look up at you and the "I Love You Mama" melts my heart every time.

    So blessed! (of to cuddle up with mine now ;-)

  25. i feel like this about my girl. i imagine us talking on the phone, hanging out, being buddies forever. ivy is so beautiful, like her mama. and hey, remember when there was an oilily outlet at lighthouse? i used to hit that sucker up all the time. my brothers were babies and the clothes were SO CUTE. i wanted to buy all the the girl stuff for my someday-daughter. so crazy that i am the someday version of me now, and my someday-daughter is alice.
