There Can't Be Anything Better Than This

You see two pink lines and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then you hear the heartbeat for the first time and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then you see a little face, little arms and little legs on the ultrasound screen and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then you feel your baby move for the first time and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then you give birth to a new life and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then you hold that new life as she sleeps and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
Then she smiles at you for the first time and you think, "There can't be anything better than this".
But there always is.
Each day is filled with something better than the day before.
And I am blessed to know that the rest of my life will be filled with "There can't be anything better than this" moments.

Awww! Beautifully worded.

And you're right. Well... until you wake up and discover a diaper oops and you have a crib FILLED with poo to wipe up (and find it in her ears, nose, and mouth too)... That's not one of those moments. Or, maybe that's just boys and you're in the clear... LOL
