Even when I was pregnant, I enjoyed my mornings alone with the pea. I do laundry, read the news, and blog while she sits with me in a sling or plays next to me on the floor. It is our quiet time together and I know she enjoys it. She looks at me intently as I catch up with a friend on the phone or giggles as I tickle her tiny toes. Before, Olivia kept me company in my belly and now she is here and keeps me company just the same. Everyone jokes about how she will crawl any day and that I better watch out because the pea is so spunky but the reality is that I am in no hurry to have this little person grow up. I want to savor this slobbery baby who travels by rolling or catching a ride in my arms. One day she will no longer need me in the same way but I will never forget that at one point she looked at me as if I had all the answers, that once upon a time I could give her everything she needed.

I've never thought about how special that "you have all the answers" look is. Thank you for the reminder to be present in the moment :)

Awww. that is so sweet. I totally know the feeling. Rowen crawled at 6 mo and immediately started trying to walk. I'm totally not ready for her to be the big girl she's working so hard to become.
