Overwhelming love

Overwhelming love for this baby. The feeling is just too great sometimes that I shy away from it. How can you walk and go through mundane activities with that feeling in you? It's just too big. I feel that some love for Andy when I think of him sleeping on the floor of the hospital room door, trying to stop people from disturbing me while I was in labor.

It's too much.

It's pretty crazy. And scary.

I know this feeling. It's a bedtime ritual at our house that one of us (it varies) reads for the girls, and then whoever didn't read needs to come for a goodnight hug. Sometimes as I'm leaving, W will call me back for one more hug, which I always happily grant.

A couple weeks ago, she did, and then as I was leaving for the second time, she did it again. And again. She wasn't stalling the bedtime (M sometimes does, but she doesn't), as I was hugging her goodnight for the 4th time she asks; "Daddy, can I have as many hugs as I want ?"

Yes. Yes you can. The answer to that will always be yes.

And it's much too big. But at the same time, I don't think it could be any other size.

You know what is amazing, that never goes away....or at least, 11 and a half years in I still that same overwhelm at times when I look at or hold my girl, and this rush of love for my (now ex) husband when I remember him holding her. :) Congrats on your new addition.

    It's a tough decision, that's for sure. I mean, our number 2 is already 20 months old, and much as I love him, half the time I'm not even sure we made the right choice in having him.

    Yes it's pretty horrible. I try not to think about it. But just have to hope that people turnout for the mid terms, and then we oust him in 4 years.

    Also, that our democratic senators do their…

    I'm not at acceptance. Last night, I thought I was, but it turned out I was just exhausted (also couldn't sleep at all election night). Now that I've slept, I'm back to scared although also…
