Yesterday, Caroline had her first taste of ice cream. She knew just what to do. Opened that big beautiful mouth, and even stuck her tongue out a bit! Put her hands out to grab the cone and smashed her face into it! The pure happiness that came over her face was indescribable! She wanted more and more and more!
Babies are so genuine with all of their emotions, and it is so refreshing. I wish we could all go back to feeling the way we felt when we were that young. The amazement that they feel when they are learning something new, the joy they exude when they see you for the first time in the morning, the sweetness they show when they give you a kiss, the excitement they show when they accomplish something, and on and on. It's all the little things, all day long. It is such an amazing thing to be a part of as a mom.
Pure happiness. I hope I never lose this feeling. I hope that Caroline never forgets the joys that she knows today. She will keep us forever young. You learn to appreciate every single little joy as a parent. This is such a great gift that she's given us.
I have to put two videos on here. Both are Brad paisley songs: "Then" and "Little moments". These are such perfect songs to describe these amazing feelings!
