Movin' like a Baby

Life with Savannah simply gets better and better.
With each new day, it's the smallest movements and gestures that are bringing about the most joy in my new life as her mama. Sometimes, I'll get lucky enough to snap a photo or video clip of a flashing smile or a darling 'coo' that melts my soul. I'm finding it easier to indulge in recognizing and cherishing the moment. 

Yesterday, Hunnybuns and I were having a super exciting one-sided conversation together when she suddenly awakened and wanted to share the love. Her eyes met mine and she just let loose on all things lovely and adorable. I about died. And when I thought my heart couldn't take this squeeze...she kept going! My hands scrambled to find my phone. Amc would love to see his little one throwing around so many smiles and coo's
After almost getting lost in the worry of catching it on camera, 




I wanted to fully appreciate and lose myself in this moment with her. And oooh...I was overcompensated on the return. I felt a beautiful and cleansing feeling. As I stared into her eyes, I dwelt on the reality that not too long ago this little love of mine was with her Heavenly Father. And when I wondered if she had ever felt excited to come here to earth and join our family, my heart ached with a spirit of gratitude as she returned another wide-mouth grin. I died again. I made a promise to myself to always appreciate the small things with those that I love most. 

I never know when this moment may be my last.

Here's to loving the small moments with our Savannah Jane.

  1. I totally smiled through the whole thing!!! LOOOOOVE!!!!! She is ADORBS!!! You're such a good mama :)

  2. Aww what a cute little girl! I absolutely LOVE soaking up the moment and it keeps getting better:) We love all three of you!

  3. Ahh, I totally teared up at the reminder of just letting go and absorbing all these precious moments. They zip by like a flash of light and soon all you're left with is a memory (if you're lucky enough to have taken the time to remember). :) Cute video too. I especially like the part where she's sleeping and then spits up!! Yea for baby moments. :)
