You light up my life…

Dear Belle,

Tonight as I was putting you to bed I was having one of those emotional moments where I look at you and wonder if I’m doing everything right, if I’m being the best mom I can possibly be.  It’s so easy to be overcome by doubts, to worry if I’m reading you enough stories, singing you enough songs, encouraging and stimulating you as much as I should. 

I was tucking you in your crib, smooshing you down with the blanket the way you like and you were smiling up at me, wiggling your shoulders the way you do when you’re happy.  (You picked that up from me).  I said to you, looking down at your precious face, “Do you know how much I love you?”

And Belle, I swear it brings tears to my eyes still as I think about it, you took your binkie out of your mouth, looked straight up at me and said, “I know.”

I hope you always do.





  1. Wow.
