It starts with B and ends with ELLA

The day started out with Bella cradled in my arms - watching Finding Nemo. That movie is like comfort food (only, less calories). At 7am, we just snuggled in a bodily tangle. Bliss.

I've seen Finding Nemo probably 100 times or more, but in this moment, with her hands playing with my fingers, my cheek resting on her head, it's like it's the first time.

Then tonight, it ended with Bella. Only this time, she was snuggled up with herself, her many blankets and stuffed animals. I lean over to give her a goodnight kiss, and it's like I'm in love. I leave her there in her safe warm bed, relieved to have some time to myself, but feeling excited, too.

I get to do it all over again tomorrow! I can't wait to see her!

My days start and end with this awesome little creature.

I'm a lucky girl!
