Hopes and Dreams and Running Through Pigeons

My deepest hope for our Little is not only that she will be healthy and happy but that she will be a dreamer. I'm always amazed by the look on a child's face when they are lost in a thought, staring out a window, trying to pile some blocks, flipping through a cardboard book. They look at everything with such wonder and curiosity and I can already imagine her this way. I remember the first time my sister put my niece in her stroller facing forward after first being in a bassinet and then facing back at her mom. She couldn't stop kicking and laughing. It was like a whole new world for her. And it really is. Every moment is brand-new and I can't wait to show it all to my Little. Soon.

I took this photograph in Paris over three years ago. This little girl was running wildly in the park behind Notre Dame and I swear I got a little pit in my stomach because that was the moment that I knew we were ready for a child of our own. I looked at my husband and we both started laughing. I just cannot wait for our girl to get here.
