Becoming a parent changes you in ways you can’t conceive before parenthood. You can imagine and plan for parenthood for months and months, but nothing can prepare you for the actual experience. It dawned on me recently, as I was playing with my daughter that I want it to never end. Seeing her smile and hearing her laugh with me (or yell at me) lifts my heart to new dimensions of bliss. Like all parents, I can’t believe how fast time has gone. Just yesterday, it seems, she was barely able to move her hands and feet. Now, she’s zipping all over the place and she can’t wait to grab onto the next piece of furniture or explore the next area we tell her not to go to.
