The way she smells.

I cannot hold her close enough, smell her enough, kiss her enough. She smells like sweet milk and the things that heaven must surely be made of. Her cheeks are soft and thick, her eyes dark like the night.

I lift her to my shoulder, she turns her head in toward my neck, and I wonder if she knows that this makes me weak in the knees.

She is my sweet little princess, my best friend.

So happy for you. I am about 28 days away from experiencing another wee baby girl curled up on my chest, with that sweet, amazing smell, those super soft ears, those wrinkly hands and feet... Heaven help me. I can hardly wait!
