And I Could Not Ask For More

Well I thought that this Valentine's was a bust. Both of my kids are sick and between the two of them waking each other up with their coughing and then Ava throwing up half the night and into the day--no one in the house got any sleep. We made it through the morning and finally Ava fell asleep watching a movie. As I was carrying her to her bed, with her eyes still closed, she whispered, "I love you. I love you, Mama." And in that moment she made my whole Valentine's Day, just like she makes my everyday.

That is the sweetest story. ( I even got teary eyed reading it..... I know I've still got the postpardom harmones going on, but still that's so cute!) It's amazing how something so small puts it all into perspective.
