Eyes of love

I've read a lot about baby bonding and how some mothers feel it right away and for others it takes a while. For me, I wouldn't say that I didn't feel a bond with my kids but for each, there was that one moment a few weeks after they were born when they just stared into my eyes as I was feeding them and I knew that they understood I was their Mommy and they love me as much as I love them. It's the most heartwarming, overwhelming feeling of love that only a few get to experience and I'm lucky to be one of them. Today my beautiful Peyton gave me that look for the first time and I can't wait for more. Alana has given me that look a million times and I'm afraid that when she learns how to talk that looks will cease. So for now I'll appreciate the silent looks of love that my children give to me. It's the most precious thing in the world.
