Sometimes it sounds more like a fake cough or a couple coughs put together. Yet the other night she tickled herself with her fake laugh so much that she gave a real giggle. She was delighted and surprised by herself and the sound that had come out. I can understand; my heart is still soaring around the sun at hearing it.
She is such a beautiful light in my life. She is such a blessing. And she is, overall, a very happy baby which makes being a new mom a lot easier.
I'm grateful for my daughter. I'm grateful to have joined the ranks of motherhood. I'm grateful for a happy child and the bond we have formed. I'm grateful for this new milestone that she is testing out! I'm grateful for the sound of her coos and chatting and I'm grateful for the beautiful sound of her giggle. I'm grateful to have the time to sit and spend with her. I'm grateful for my ears that allow me to hear these sweet moments as she tests her voice. I'm so grateful to be so very blessed.
What sounds make your heart fill with joy? What special moments are you grateful for today?
May today bless us with the ability to listen to the world around us and find beauty there. May we cherish the special moments as they come and recognize our blessings in the moment.
