Kealani is 3 months old today!

I cannot believe that 3 months ago today, I was in the hospital giving birth to our little angel. I still cannot get over the fact that she was in my tummy just a short while ago. I can still remember seeing our little "peanut" at the first ultrasound... hearing her heart beat for the first time... seeing her moving around in my belly at the 3D/4D ultrasounds... feeling her moving around in my belly... feeling kicks... feeling her hiccups... and then getting to hold her for the first time not being able to fathom how she came from what she started as to a beautiful baby that we can now hold, love and snuggle with. It's such a miracle that I still am flabbergasted (sp?) by!!! It's funny because when I think about our life, it feels like just yesterday we were bringing Kealani home from the hospital and trying to adjust to our "new" life. But on the other hand it's crazy because we cannot even begin to imagine our life without her, and it's even hard to remember our lives before her, at times. She has been such a huge blessing to us and we could not be happier. Though I didn't know it was possible, I feel like it's actually brought Noah and I even closer. We just simply LOVE being parents. It's so incredible to watch her grow, learn new things, discover something different everyday, see her face light up when she smiles (which in turn makes our face light up just as big, if not bigger), hear her laugh, hear her sweet little voice while she coo's and talks in her own little language, I even love to hear her cry at times because I know she is simply trying to communicate with me and it reminds me that she needs me and is trying to tell me how to make her happy... I just love seeing the world through her eyes. As many of you know that already have kids, it's just something you cannot imagine until you are actually fortunate enough to experience it first-hand. I pray that everyone gets to experience this pure joy at some time as there is no other feeling like it. Anyway, I could go on forever, so I'll stop there! LOL! Here are just a few pics we took today so we would have pictures of her on her 3 month birthday! As you can see, she's excited about turning 3 months! Haha! :)

That was so beautiful - you made me cry. Your words perfectly encompass every joy that I've felt, too. You're awesome, your baby is just perfect and your family is very blessed. Thanks for the uplifting message - you made my morning!

Katherine,
I'm so glad you enjoyed my rambling -- as you know it's hard to put our joyful feelings into words, but I had to try. :) I knew you'd feel the same as I do -- we are SO lucky!!!
