Documenting the lives of a brown eyed girl with curls, and her baby brother's world.

I love you too!

I must say that I'm obsessed with my little girl. I want to eat her little legs, bite her toes, smell her stinky feet, and kiss all over her little cheeks. When I'm at work, all I think about is her. I often tell Derrick that she's the best thing I've ever done in my life!

With that said, I thank God for putting her in good hands while I'm away. I'm thankful to have found such a loving babysitter/sister/aunt to watch over my most prized possession.

To brighten my day, Ashley sent me these pics of my snaggle tooth baby girl. She now has 4 teeth coming in. I also attached a song by Darius Rucker. I originally heard it when he sang it on Thanksgiving Day, but Taren and I have heard it since and it's so sweet. Enjoy.

It Won't Be Like This For Long lyrics

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Lying there in bed and listening
To his newborn baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says,
"It's gonna be okay"

"It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughing
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby, just hold on
It won't be like this for long"

Four years later, 'bout 4:30
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at pre-school
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says, "What can I do?"
She says, "Now, don't you worry
This'll only last a week or two"

"It won't be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off
And she won't even know you're gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It won't be like this for long"

Someday soon she'll be a teenager
And at times, he'll think she hates him
And he'll walk her down the aisle
And raise her veil,
But right now she's up and cryin'
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her goodnight
And she says her prayers

He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watching her it breaks his heart
'Cause he already knows

It won't be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
And this phase is gonna fly by
So he's trying to hold on
It won't be like this for long
It won't be like this for long
