Be Still My Heart

Shhhhhhh...If you listen very carefully, you may hear the sound of my heart melting.

Why? You ask. (And you know you do.)

Because, for the first time ever, Emmy told me she loves me.

Here's how it went. Everytime I lay Emmy in her crib I tell her

"Goodnight. Sleep tight. I love you."

And she usually smiles, sometimes says "bye" and lays down to sleep (or plays with any of the bagillion toys in her crib.)

But today, it went like this:

Me: "Goodnight. Sleept tight. I love you."

Emmy: "Rah, rah, rah, rah. You."

And then she smiled, rolled over and went to sleep. With her belly full of delicious soup and her Moo snuggled up in her arms. Amazing, right? I have only waited 19 months, 7 days, 15 hours, and 25 minutes to hear her say that. (Not to mention a 15 hour labor and 36 hour induction.) But hey, who's counting?
