Tonight Brad was holding Vivi while I ate a piece of banana bread (don’t judge – it’s best eaten warm!). She was getting close to falling asleep, so they were taking a stroll around the living room.
Everytime they would walk near the chair I was sitting in, Vivian’s little face would light up when she saw me. Her eyes would start to dance, and she would break into a big grin – little happy sounds coming out of her mouth.
Once she was facing away from me again, she would become straight-faced and quiet. Sure enough, they would round the corner, and once she saw me, BIG SMILES! This went on for about 15 laps around the living room… and I swear, I could have done it forever! My heart was so full, I’ll admit I got tears in my eyes.
There is nothing as sweet as a happy baby’s smile. I love our little family.
Goodnight all! Part two of my childbirth story to come tomorrow…
