Oh, That Face

Oh, that face... With it's bright blue eyes and mouth that is always covered with a paci.  That face that goes with the hand that always clutches a white, cloth diaper... The face of my sweet Emma.

She is spending the night with her grandparents tonight.  I know I should be enjoying every second of free time, but I can't help but be a little sad.  

You see, it doesn't matter to me how tired I am, or how sick I have been, I want that sweet face here, in her bed.  I want to go into her room before I go to bed and kiss that sweet face for the millionth time today... Just one more time.  I want to whisper I Love You for the umpteenth time since I got her out of bed this morning.  I miss her terribly when she is gone.  I spend nearly every second of every day with her, so when she isn't here, it's hard.  

Tonight there are no toys to pick up, no baths to clean up after, no kisses and hugs and I Love Yous.  Tonight just feels empty.  So, I am anxiously awaiting tomorrow so that I can go get her and bring her home.  I am so ready to shower her with kisses and I Love Yous.  I am so ready to see that sweet face!


  1. Hang in there mama. It SO gets easier. Someday you'll be begging your mama to take her. HA! : )

  2. Ha Ha! Thanks! It's been so nice to have her back home! Busy, but nice. :)
