We love each other

We have a bond.  A mother daughter bond.  Maisie is my little part of me that I just can’t get enough of.  When she was in my womb, we stuck together.  Like when Justin and I got in an argument, Maisie was there.  When I felt alone, Maisie was there.  I am not saying that I depended on her.  It is just that it was sort of comforting knowing that a little person was with me all the time.  Well, she had no choice really because she was in my womb.  Now though, now she has a choice.

It is so precious to me that she knows the difference between other people and me.  And she prefers me!  How great is that!?!  I love it!  She now stares at me while I am changing her diaper, which I love.  And today when I was feeding her, I caught her staring at me as well!  It is so great to be loved!  Maisie is a sweet little thing that loves to be cuddled, just like me!

She looks like Justin, but in my opinion, has my personality.  Justin and I seriously can’t get enough of her.  Justin is a great dad and the best burper of Maisie there could be!  It has been super cool getting to know Justin as a dad.  He is amazing.  Makes me love him even more than I already did, which I didn’t know was possible!  Things are good in the Powell family! 

Here are some pictures taken today.  The one of the family is at Sacre Coeur.  Enjoy!

    I can’t believe how big she is already. Can you please ask her to stop growing until January 24th. Such a cute family.

    New babies are amazing, arn’t they? I remember how my son would just gaze at me with all the love he could muster when he was new . . . he still does, but now, before they are running around, you could stare at each other for HOURS! It’s beautiful.
    I find it’s easier being a mother than a wife. But that’s just me. I can tell my kids what to do. 😉
