I've learned that I can love with my whole entire heart, mind, body, and soul. I love my daughter so much sometimes it hurts! I'm sure any mother could relate to that feeling though. The way she gazes into my eyes as I feed her, watching her grow and change everyday, and knowing it is my birthright to love her, watch over her, and love her unconditionally no matter what.
I've learned just how precious life is and that material possessions at the end of the day are not what matter. At the beginning of my childs life she had a very rough start in this world. We were both very sick, and honestly very lucky and blessed to still be here today. Put down your phone, turn off the TV, and pay attention to your kids!!! It goes by in a blink and you don't wanna miss all the amazing things that come along with parenthood.
Patience. I have learned so much more patience then I ever had before. Sometimes it can be hard, I have learned it is okay to have a hard day, and it is okay to cry, and still come out of it even stronger for my daughter. She needs my example and patience is important in so many areas of life.
Growing up has been a huge thing also. Being a parent requires adult decisions and behavoirs and I wouldn't be who or where I am today without my beautiful little girl. She guides every single decision I make and makes me the best person I can be.
Having a child changes your whole perspective on life as a whole for the better. Hold on tight to every single moment you have with your babies. As cliche' as it sounds, life is so precious and we only get one shot. So make memories and cherish every single moment you have.
