Chloë and Mommy

Thank goodness that Chloe is a much cuter baby than I! I looked like a little Asian redheaded baby. For all of you who wanted to see a pic of Chloe and I as an infant.. here you go. I wish I had a better pic, this is a picture of a picture. Thats as good as I can get right now. I am starting to see little things about baby Chloe that are mine, like her little wrinkled hands, maybe her eyes, and her little feet are starting to rememble mine. She has started to smile and we are both getting more sleep these days. I am really starting to enjoy her more and more. I am feeling an intense love for this little girl.                                                     

I loved you from the very start,

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

Our life together has just begun

You're part of me my little one.

As mother with child, each day I grew,

My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

I'd daydream of the things we'd share,

Like late-night feedings and Teddy bears.

Like first steps and skinned knees,

Like bedtime stories and ABC's.

I thought of things you'd want to know,

Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I thought of lessons I'd need to share,

Like standing tall and playing fair.

When I first saw your precious face,

I prayed your life be touched with grace.

I thanked the angels from above,

And promised you unending love.

Each night I lay you down to sleep,

I gently kiss your head and cheek.

I count your little fingers and toes;

I memorize your eyes and nose.

I linger at your nursery door,

Awed each day I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I dim the light,

I whisper, "I love you" every night.

I loved you from the very start,

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

As mother and child our journeys begin,

You have daddy's skin and your mommy's chin.
