Lizzy will be 1 year old in a few days. My little baby is not a baby an longer...she is almost walking. Her attitude is popping out here and there. Uugh! tells me all I need to know. She wants this or she wants that. But she is very sweet as well.

The other night I was putting her down for the night and as always I hold her tight and kiss her on the forehead. But that night I held on a little tighter and held her a little longer and for the first time, I felt that all consuming, I can't live without you, you make me happier than I have ever been, feeling. That all so powerful love for your child. I have been waiting for this for a while now, and it finally got here. It's that feeling that when you breath them in, you know you would suffocate without them. A mothers' love.
