I don’t remember giving this kid permission to grow so fast. Yet, she went ahead with it anyway. All of a sudden, she’s 5 months old. I felt like I got robbed of time somehow. Wasn’t it just yesterday she was a soft little bundle in my arms, with the wrinkles and puffiness of a newborn baby? How is it that today she’s big and heavy and lifting her head up like it’s no big deal?
Before Savanna arrived, I remember wondering how I could love another human being as much as I love Joshua. Well, in retrospect, that was kind of a dumb thing to worry about. The moment I laid my eyes on her, my heart expanded its capacity to love. She instantly became my focus, my light, and my inspiration. Life is never the same again, and I am so grateful for the way she has changed it.
