It’s an absolutely beautifully perfect day today. It reminds me why we choose to live here, and Lord knows I need remindin’ sometimes. The traffic. The high cost of living. The unaffordable homes. At times I want to pack up and move to Texas, but then a day like this comes along and I’m all “hell no! I won’t go!”
I took Gabriella to the park so we could enjoy the beautiful sunshine .
I couldn’t justify staying in this dark, dusty house when there was sunshine, green grass and pretty little birdies singing outside. (It’s been a LONG time since I hit you with The Cheese. You will take The Cheese and you will LIKE IT!)
She loved laying on the grass. But not as much as I loved watching her.
And taking pictures of her. Lots and lots of pictures of her. My God, she is a beautiful baby.
After we were through playing in the wet, cool grass, we walked over to the playground. I wanted to put her in the baby swing and see if she’d enjoy it or if she’d freak out.
She loved it.
She laughed. She squeeled. She kicked her feet. It was incredible to watch.
And yes, I totally cried. Right there at the park while pushing her swing. I couldn’t get over how precious my daughter is.
After much swinging and laughter and quite a bit of farting, we went on a little walk so I could get some exercise in. It wasn’t long before the excitement of the day got to Gabby and she was ready for a nap.
We came home, I kissed her on her cheek and thanked her for a glorious day, then I went to my room, got on my knees and thanked God for knowing I needed her and giving her to me.
