lately

Lately Ive been singing this song to Audrey as i put her to sleep. Its such a nice song and brings happy tears to my eyes when i think about how nice life is right now and what the future can bring.
 

How could i ask for more 
Theres nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon
Waking to the sunlight and being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing mama's face goodnight and holding daddy's hand
Thank you Lord, how could i ask for more

Running barefoot in the grass
a little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark
When there's no one else around
Being bundled 'neath the covers, watching snow fall to the ground
Thank you Lord, how could i ask for more

So many things i thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that Ive made along the way
So if there's anything ive learned
On this journey i am on
Simple truth will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
Cuz there are questions without answers
Flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
Thank you Lord, how could i ask for more

i love my little baby. even when she is fussy and wont fall asleep, or wakes up too much at night... even when she is eating too fast and it keeps dribbling down her chin... i love her when she cries, and i desperately want to fix whatever is wrong.
I love my husband. i love that he can stay up late at night sometimes and feed and put Audrey to sleep while i rest... i love that he calls her "dotsya" and kisses her all over her little face... i love that he is so happy and positive at the times when im stressed out and tired. he is an amazing man and i thank god for him.
