My Cup Runneth Over

What an amazing six weeks. Arguably the most exhausting, emotional, exhilarating six weeks of my life. All of those cliches about motherhood turned out to be true. I love my daughter more than I ever thought. My heart beats a little faster when I look at her. I can't help but smile when I see her lying in her crib, even at a very early 4 a.m. It's a true testament to God's grace and blessings.

For 40 weeks, I wondered what she would look like, and now, every day I get to look into her sweet, sparkling eyes and perfectly shaped mouth that she got from her papi. Sofi has such a sweet demeanor and is already drinking in every ounce of the world around her. I simultaneously want to slow down time and fast forward to see her crawl and walk and hear her first word and laugh. I know though, that I need to be present in every single moment that I have this sweet girl with me. I need to be intentional about my parenting and ask God to saturate my heart and mind so that SofĂ­a can see God's love through me.

1 Timothy 1:5
The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
