Good girl.

My mama-googly eyes are in full force tonight- like way more than usual. I'm looking through my day's worth of pictures, reflecting on our moments together and something about reliving her joy through these images just gets me all choked up, you know? I swear, this girl of mine has really turned me into such a softie!
 
Today Navi told me that I was a "good girl". This, I'm sure, is her version of "I love  you". She says it sparingly and in context of when one would say "I love you". Its usually accompanied by a kiss, a pat or simply the resting of her head on your shoulder. And it.is.glorious! Its immeasurable sweetness and good-mama-validation, a mid-day pick-me-up and a maker of a week all rolled into two little words.
 
I give her my whole heart each and every day, and if need be, I'd give her my life without a second of hesitation. There really is no greater honor in this world than being her mama. I have hopes and dreams of my own, sure- but my biggest of dreams is that she will have a wonderful life. That she will love and appreciate this beautiful earth. That she will know she is protected, accepted, respected, blessed and unconditionally loved. I hope that she chases all of her dreams wholeheartedly and without reservation. I hope that she lives a good life. And I hope and pray that she will one day feel the immeasurable joy of being a mama. That she will one day be able to look at a sweet-faced baby the way that I look at her and feel her heart swell so big that it could burst. Feel it swell so much that it hurts sometimes. There will be tough times, sure, but when her little angel tells her that she is a "good girl", she will feel more alive and more love than she's ever felt in her whole life... more than she ever knew was possible... and I am so, so excited for her.
