3 - The number of times tears welled up in my eyes today due to missing my baby girl so much and being so sad we have waited so long without even a picture of our daughter.
The first time was while watching the Food Network Giada's Christmas Special. Giada was eating her yummy looking dinner with family. Her cute daughter, who looked to be about 15 months old, was sitting by her. She was feeding her daughter dessert, and bam, I am crying wishing my daughter was going to be at our Christmas dinner.
The second time was when my wonderful friend dropped off this Christmas gift for us.
In the front inscripted "Just a reminder that you are not waiting alone. We can't wait to meet Leah."
The first few lines of this book "Every year on your birthday, I think about the day you were born, how the sun must have shone, or the moon looked so bright. I wasn't there, but I was thinking about you as I waited at home to be your new mother." Instant tears, what a beautiful book, what a special gift! It means the world to me that friends remember we are waiting. And this book is amazing, I look forward to the day I can read it to my Leah.
The third time was of course when I was rocking Anderson to bed. (Yes, he is over two years old, but I insist on rocking him to bed and he loves it!) I pretty much tear up every single night I rock that child to bed, thinking about my daughter on the other side of the world, so this night was no different. I hope someone is rocking her, loving her right now.
Until we meet sweet baby girl, I will love you and miss you terribly. xxoo, your Mommy
