The love I feel for you never ceases to amaze me. It’s different from any other type of love. I’ve come to realize three distinct types of love that I have in my life.
The first type of love is the love I feel for my friends and family (outside of your spouse and children). These individuals are in my life because I choose to keep them there. I love and accept them for who they are, as they do the same for me. They add to my life and help to fulfill me. They encourage me and help me to grow into the person I want to be. They are the people that I know will always be there for me and will always give me the benefit of the doubt and are individuals that I would do anything for.
The second type of love is the love I feel for your Daddy. This type of love is a more intimate bond than what I have with anyone else in my life. He is the person that knows more about me than anyone else and that has seen me at my worst, yet chooses to love me anyway. Yes, we CHOOSE to love each other, we choose to work to make each other happy. We have a love that continues to grow throughout our years together, and our bond continues to grow stronger. It is a love that I know I would feel empty inside without. A love that I would be lost without. A love that completes me.
Then there is the love that I feel for you. It was instantaneous. Overwhelming. Unconditional. I thought I knew what it would be like to love a child, I had no idea. Often times when I look at you I feel amazed. Amazed that you are mine. Amazed that a human is capable of loving someone else so deeply, so unconditionally. I look at you with pride. Proud of what you are, your personality, your awesome disposition. You march to your own tune, and I love that. So much personality already beams out of you now, and I know that it will do nothing but continue to grow. I can’t wait to watch you grow into the amazing woman that I know that you will be, it is going to be so fun. It already is so fun. Sometimes when I am watching you run around being crazy I feel a bubble start in the pit of my stomach, my throat tightens up, and then the tears begin to well up in my eyes. Yes, I love you so much you bring tears to my eyes. Having you has made my put my true character to test, and has made me realize that I have many areas that I need to grow. Thank you so much for the joy you have brought to our lives these past 10 months. I can’t imagine life without you.
