|Say hello to Piper, my perfectly amazing creation!|
1) There is no other love in the world that compares to the love a mother feels for her child. No matter how much you think you love someone, even your significant other (if you have one) and your closest family members and dearest friends, none of those loves remotely touches a mother's love for her wee-one. At least that's how I feel. Then again, I never could find my Prince Charming and became a single mom by choice via IUI, so my experience with romantic love for another is not quite up to par with others out there in the world. Also, mother-child love is very different than other types of love, of which there are many. But I do honestly feel that I could not love anyone as much as I love Piper....ever!
|How could you not totally love this face?|

This girl cracks me up!
4) My body is perfect the way it is. Before having a child, I had a horrible body image. It was probably due to all the years as a ballet dancer where I had to constantly worry about my weight that instigated this issue, but it was motherhood that cured it. I no longer look in the mirror and overly judge myself. I know I will never have my 22-year-old butt and stomach back, and I'm perfectly okay with that. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to let myself completely go or still not lose some of that post-baby weight, but now it's not a race to be perfect by bathing suit weather. I've earned my cheese, and with it a glass of wine instead of a workout if I so choose.
|Who cares if my thighs are larger than they used to be,|
This is what it's all about!
|And we're still going strong on this 13 months later!|
|Even this plate revolves around Piper!|
|Being silly is a good thing!|
|Yep, I can even make up a song about this!|
|Piper gets no privacy, either!|
|Yep, life doesn't get any better than seeing that smile on a daily basis!|
