My daughter Azriel and I were just 'wrestling' this afternoon [a.k.a... she runs from me squealing and I tackle her with tickles onto our bed]. She snuggled in close and in that tender moment I randomly spurted out "you and me are going to grow up together"...
...and then it hit me [like it so often does]
I get to watch this little precious humanoid grow
day by day
moment by moment
giggle by giggle
...and once again I am all twitter-patted by the wonder of motherhood!
