Baby Love

In my rational, everyday mind, I know that we are programmed by the Creator to love our children in the interest of propagating the species. Yet this simple science doesn’t explain why the love is so deep! Delaney is almost three months old and she makes me want to cry! She is the sweetest, most adorable baby! Although I love ALL my children, there’s something about a baby that I can’t quite explain. She is my last (planned :>) ) baby, so maybe I’m also feeling some grief over this fact. If I was 10 or even 5 years younger, I’d be thinking about the next one. The pregnancy was healthy, but miserable. In my hormone drenched, crazy pregnant mind I sometimes worried that the fact that I was so sick and uncomfortable would make me resentful towards the baby. Now I know how ridiculous that thought was.
