I don’t know how it happened. I don’t know when it happened. But this teeny tiny three month old has managed to carve a place for herself in heart and she has made herself quite comfortable there 🙂
I confess, I had a mini meltdown the day before I went into theatre. I just did not know how I could possibly love another child as much as I did my first. I felt guilty for loving the new baby less even before she arrived. (Mum guilt is a very real and powerful thing!). I even whispered to my firstborn that she would always be my favourite (I’m not proud).
Yet now this little person has managed to stretch my love to make space for herself. And man oh man do I love her. She makes me smile inside even on days when all I do is cry. I keep getting glimpses of the little girl she is going to be and I can’t wait.
I never knew how much I could love until I had kids. And I never knew how limitless my love is until I had my second child.
