I'm sitting in the dim light of the living room, basking in the glow of tonight. What a night...what a wonderful, run of the mill, uneventful, brilliant night. It would have been perfect, except that Dad has been gone for about 3 1/2 months and we feel the void of him. There is certainly a huge daddy shaped hole in the middle of the house.
Tonight as I watched you in the bath, I again thought about how lucky I am. The love I feel for you in my heart is almost sharp. No words could justify the waves of exhilaration and inspiration created from watching you grow up. In less than a month you will be one whole year old. I was watching the video of your birth day today and I felt surprised to recall that there was a time in my life when you were not yet in it. I watched you and I...our first moments of seeing one another. I beg time to slow down and I simmer in the joy of me and You and our little world.
You are starting to flirt with the idea of standing on your own. I know your first steps will be sometime soon in our future. You remain fearless in the bathtub. I can't wait to get you in a pool! We have so much to look forward to...Millions of more uneventful nights- which is absolutely my most favorite thing in the world.
