ma-ma {{my heart melts}}

I found out that I was going to be a mom on August 12, 2012.
I became a mom on April 12, 2013.
And then today Sadie said the words every mother can’t wait to hear, “ma-ma”.
And Craig just so happened to catch her saying it on video 🙂

I use to be so annoyed with those women who would say, “just wait, you have no idea what true love is until you have a child.” I thought, yeah right. Well guess what? I deserve a smack in the face for doubting them, and for ever believing that any love could compare to a mother’s love. Love is not unconditional until your heart is walking outside of your body. Love is not complete until you see your own smile and eyes on the face of someone else’s {even if she does look like her daddy!}. And on a day like today {and almost everyday} when it hurts knowing all of this NOW but not being able to tell my own mom that I love her, it makes the pain a little less hearing my daughter say the words MA-MA.
