We had a wonderful time at the Bed and Breakfast. There were a couple fleeting moments when I wished it were just Steve and me, but overall the three of us had lots of fun together.

Ever since Emma's birth, I've felt this all-consuming love for her. From the very first time I saw her sweet little face, my feelings for her have been more intense than any I've felt for another person. Lately, though, she has somehow managed to step it up a bit. She is just SO adorable, and SO sweet, and SO perfect that I feel like I'm going to burst every time I look at her. I've been saying, "Do you want to rock on my shoulder?" a lot lately and she'll come over and cuddle with me for awhile. Today she was pushing her doll around in her little stroller. They went in the kitchen, and a minute later I heard her say in her cute little toddler voice, "Rock on mine shoulder, yittle baby. Rock on mine shoulder." I went to peek at her and she was sitting on the floor, holding the doll to her shoulder and sweetly rocking back and forth. As I watched, she kissed the doll on the top of it's head. When she noticed me watching her, she placed her finger on her lips and said quietly, "Shhhhhhhh. Emma rock yittle baby." Could she possibly be any sweeter? I seriously doubt it. You'd better hope not or you're going to have to deal with more of these sappy, gushing posts.

Oh, Sweetie, isn't it wonderful that you're setting such a good example for Emma of how to be a loving mother?! Happy Mother's Day to you and all the other sweet and dedicated mothers who read your blog!

My address ook seems to be in no particular order and I know you have o many aliases to hide your checkered past, that I may never find your real name. If that is your real name.

She should learn to be more tough like Steve; she can practice by killing snakes!
