i love being a mom :)

There are days when there is nothing I love more than being a mom. This past weekend, Brian and I spent some great quality time together, alone in KC for a marriage retreat. It was wonderful and I am so glad we went. His mom watched Eden for us, and when we went to pick her up on Sunday, I had one of the most amazing mommy experiences. I got down on the floor to play with her, but instead of playing, she crawled to me, climbed up into my lap and started sucking her thumb. All cuddled up close to me, entwining her other hand into my hair, I had never felt more loved by that little girl. Those are the moments I am so thankful for.
