time flies...

Ten years ago today, during a snowstorm, a pink, naked, dark haired, blue-eyed, sweet baby girl was laid on my breast. I finally got to say hello to the being that had taken over my body. The being whose feet would poke out and give my basketball-sized belly odd shapes. Soft music was playing (she still listens to this every night) and time stood still.

That day, I realized just how much a parent loves a child, I knew the deepest love.

In those first few days, I'd lay in bed, gazing at her for hours... wondering what the world would hold for her, my sunshine.

I find myself still gazing at her, usually in awe. She's an amazing person. Her kindness touches me. Her infectious smile warms my very soul. Her questions test my patience and my knowledge of the world (thank GOD for the internet)... and her observations about the world humble me.

Fast forward to today and I'm faced with a mini version of me (my parents' revenge). She's a great traveller, a music afficionado, a budding scientist... and a very cool chick indeed. We're embarking on quite the journey after the first 10 years... I've got my shots, my passport and I guess we'll see where this next decade takes us.

It promises to be quite the ride.

Bonne fête mon trésor!
Je t'aime de TOUT mon coeur!

Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes.
