Today, I was lying in the floor of our living room with Vivienne while Miles was asleep in his bouncy seat. I was lying on my side and she was lying beside me. Her big, beautiful blue eyes were just staring at me and I was staring back at her. Every now and then I would smile at her and she would smile back, or she would smile at me first and then I would smile back at her. The house was quiet except for the sound of the rain outside. I just laid there and stared at my beautiful daughter and thought about how someday I will probably be willing to give anything to have this time back. Someday, she'll be 18 and moving out of the house, and I will give anything to be able to stare at her blue eyes and see her sweet gummy baby smile and touch her soft, beautiful baby cheeks. I just want to soak up these moments, because I know they will go by so quickly. At least today, I have today.
