My favorite thing is the pure joy with which children experience the world. I can make silly sounds and have Juliana just beaming. Cori is older, so its things like decorating the Christmas tree, looking at the new snow this morning, going to the park, etc. She just gets so excited and I love that it rubs off on me too.

I love the bond I already have with my son and and the bond that will develop as he gets older. I love seeing his smile and I love it when he reaches for me. I love cuddling and playing with him and watching him discover new things.

Oh my goodness... I think this question is going to make me cry!!!!

I couldn't pick one, so I had to make a list.

  • Watching my DH interact with his daughter ... more interested in playing with her and being with her than TV or internet, etc.
  • Making her laugh -- joyous squeels just melt my heart!
  • Watching her get excited over the "little" things like the Kitty (I really think Kitty is going to be her first word).
  • Watching her grow and learn new things... rolling over, sitting up, etc. (crawling will be soon)
  • Watching her sleep .. it makes me laugh when she lets out little snort or snoring noises
  • Watching her interact with others ... she smiles at everyone -- she gets LOTS of attention out in public
  • How she can make a bad day at work disappear with a single smile
  • "showing her off" (I hope that doesn't make me sound pious or snotty... She just brings me so much joy that I want to share that with others)
  • When she is sleeping in my arms... it doesn't happen too much anymore because she puts herself to sleep and only falls asleep in my arms if that is the only option.
  • EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!

There aren't many things I don't love about being a mom...
I think the amount of love that you can feel for a little one is the best. And, you can feel that much for every child. You never run out of love. It's awesome to know that the heart has no ability to reach full capacity.

I love watching them discover and learn new things, seeing them smile, their laughter, watching them sleep, too much to name! I love it all.

It also melts my heart when him and Haley are together. I never thought I could love anyone as much as Haley, but I do. They are me greatest joy!

Wow this is a good thread right before Christmas. I have been asked if I am crazy a lot lately when ppl find out I have a 20 month old and will have a newborn but I love being a Mom more then anything in the world and I knew I wasn't alone. I am afraid I will never sit down again but I know I will have a smile on my face the whole time. I just have never loved anything more in my life then being with Benjamin and even more when Benjamin, DH and I are together. I can't wait to add one more, I know it will be even better but I can't even imagine that. We are going through a hard time with money and other things but it all melts away when I see him. He always knows how to make me smile and I find it impossible to be upset around him.

We are the luckiest people!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy
