My big girl is 5 months!

I can't believe that my little girl is 5 months already. Looking back at these pictures reminds me of how much she has grown. She can hold her head up, roll over, and she is quite the chatter box - even if we don't know what she is saying.

Being a mother has changed my life. My love for her is reflected in all that she does. She is who she is because of how we take care of her. Her smiles and laughter, her cries and sadness, all of who she is.

So many people told me that the love I would feel for my child would be like nothing I had ever felt before, and they were right. When she wakes up in the morning and smiles at me, when she sees Kenrick come home from work and recognizes him, when she sees any of her friends and family and wants to play with them, it all reminds me of who she is and who we have raised her to be.

To say I am proud would be an understatement. To say I am over joyed wouldn't be enough. To say I am her parent, well that sums it all up.
