My Burden To Bear...Thank You James

I have been told countless times that "Riley is SPOILED!" Mostly by myself, James, GG & Papa....all laughing while they say it, looking at her. I also hear "It's a shame you're not loved!" (saying it sarcastically to Riley). But overall, Riley is a Mommy's girl. When she is tired of entertaining herself she wines because she knows that I will come to her beacken call and scoop her up and hold her, all day if she wants. James tells me that I have spoiled her rotten and my response to him everytime is "It's my burden to bear!"

When I am not holding her, she is constantly looking around for me. Everyone always says she has to have me in her sight 24/7. It really is funny to watch her head turn to look for me and follow my every move. I love holding her and cuddling and kissing on her.

Last night as I was feeding her and holding her, getting her ready to go to bed I started to get teary-eyed. I couldn't help but feel a rush of emotions. Oh, how much I love this little girl, and how much more I love James because he gave her to me. When I went to bed that night I hugged and kissed James and told him how thankful I was that he worked so hard in college to get a good job so that I could be a stay at home mom. I am truly blessed and love our little family more than I could ever explain.
