A Little Extra In My Ordinary...

A little extra in my ordinary today... Little Reesie is that much closer to crawling and I just love it!!!!

Every afternoon I usually have about a half an hour alone with Reesie while the other kids are sleeping and before she goes down for her afternoon nap... It's seriously one of my most favorite times of my day... There is something really special about this girl... She has been nothing but a delight since I brought her home from the hospital... I keep trying to find her faults and I have yet to come across many... When ever I walk into her room her face lights up with this gorgeous smile... her whole body gets excited to see me... she shakes her arms and kicks her legs and does this silly laugh that I just can't seem to get enough of...

Truth be told I just can't seem to get enough of Reesie... There is something between the two of us that I can't pinpoint but I know that I cherish it... I am confident that as she grows, we will have a real mother and daughter relationship... we will have our disagreements and moments of miscommunication and even moments frustration, sadness and probably even disappointment... But for today, I am soaking up this little treasure... I am soaking up every smile, every memory, every laugh, every time she buries her face in my chest, every hug, every new accomplishment... everything that I can remember to soak up, I will...

Here is a series of some of the many faces that make my ordinary day EXTRAordinary...
