I've found that it's easier to write and talk about the weird and tough parts about being a Mom. It's difficult to find the words to write about how much I love Kylie and how much joy she brings me. I could write- I love her, I love her, I love her-a hundred times and it wouldn't come close to defining the depths of love that I feel for her and how I love her more each day.

Isn't it the Eskimos who have so many words for snow and ice? I wish we could create a few more words to define love.

The love of your baby...Isn't it an amazingly, wonderful thing?! I still can't believe how my love for Ethan grows every single day. I never knew I could love anything or anyone as much as I love him. It's the kind of love that makes your knees go weak and your heart flutter over the fear of losing it.

Jeff and I both remember when, at different points, we discovered that we now loved Ethan more than each other. It was a startling realization but amazing as well. At that moment, I truly knew that if I had a moment of life and death choice, I would always choose my beloved baby. The love I have for him and the love he gives me in return humbles me constantly.

I remember this feeling so clearly. When I was pregnant the second and third times, I remember thinking 'how can I possibly love this new baby as much as I love the one I have?' Damn if it didn't just get bigger with each one. Now that they are almost grown, I still look at them or talk with them and I am astounded at how that love has changed and grown and is only bigger every day. Different but still amazing in every way.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, you just posted 2000 words that say how much you both love Kylie. I bet that doesn't even scratch the surface though. :)
