A letter to my Grace

Dear Grace,
I just had one of those moments with you that took my breath away. One of those moments where your mom learned love. A love that my heart can't contain so that tears just poured down my cheeks. You just spent about 30 minutes napping on my chest, wiggling and cuddling. You were so deeply asleep that when you started to stir it took a while to get those eyes peeled open. And when you did, a smile, you looked at me and smiled instantly. I love your beautiful smile. We cuddled and cooed and I started to cry. You see, I wasn't sure we were going to have these moments...these moments of not only recognition but adoring. I am so beyond grateful that my heart can't contain it. You are a gift. A perfect and precious gift to me and I am eternally grateful for moments like these. You are now on your mat, playing and kicking, smiling up a storm. I took about 30 pics of you having a ball and I had to write you a letter, because I felt like I would burst if I didn't get to tell you. To tell you how much I love you. I know you understand my love now, I just don't want to forget perfect moments like these with my amazing Grace.
I Love you sweetheart, Mommy
