As I sit here, holding my child,
My body still broken from delivery,
Thinking to myself what a precious, amazing gift this is.
My emotions are frayed, I'm covered in leaked milk and yet this moment is beautiful.
Every squeak and gurgle, every tiny movement.
The opening of the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen.
How did I live before this?
My love I see echoed by her father, my father and mother too, brings me so much joy I can not express it.
She is the most precious, most perfect, most amazing creature in the whole world and I will do anything to protect her, to make her happy.
I want her to know this, to know how much she is loved, as I always have.
She is my greatest source of happiness.
My reason for being.
