Words can't describe my emotions as I sit and rock my precious little girl with her head on my shoulder and her arms around my neck. She is playing with my hair. I am holding her tight. Rocking my sleeping little girl. She is growing up so fast. These last 7 1/2 months have just flown by. I am trying desperately to savor each day and each stage of her life, but I feel like they are slipping through my fingertips as she makes her way to the next milestone and stage.
My precious Ruthie is such a joy. The utmost honor I have is to be her mom. To love her, rock her, feed her, laugh with her, watch her grow and develop is what makes my mommy heart sing. Her personality is so sweet and loving. She truly is a loving and tender hearted little girl. She's funny and enjoys playing games and laughing. She's got the BEST tickle spots and laughs right out loud when's tickled. She plays with her friends Duck and Octopus and loves her shiny little fishy. Taggy is a constant friend too.
She sings and talks all the time. What a beautiful melody it is. I am so glad that my home will be filled with the sound of her voice for so many years to come. My heart wells up and spills over with wonder, amazement, love, joy and such a sense of awe. I can't believe that God entrusted me with this precious, perfect little life.
She loves others and interacts so well with everyone. There isn't a soul at church who isn't greeted with a smile on Sunday. She has enough love to share and shares it freely. Her smiles light up a room, and she draws people to her. Everywhere we go, she is the attention grabber.
I am absolutely humbled by my precious little girl. Truly grateful for the opportunity to guide, direct, teach, and observe this wonderful gift from God. If only I could bottle my feelings and make time stand still... but then at the same moment I can't wait to see her crawl, walk, and run. To jump and swim, to hear her talk and to watch her bloom even more into God's little girl. To come through those rocky years of adolescence and become close friends. I guess that is why my heart is so full. It is full of love, full of hope, full of wonder, full of dreams for the future.
I love you, Ruthie. You are my sweet pea, my lovie, my Ruthie Roo. You make my mommy heart sing.
