When I look at my daughter


.. especially when she is asleep or smiling, I feel as if I have known her face all my life. She looks exactly how I always dreamed a daughter of mine would look and there are no surprises in getting to know her face because it has been in my dreams for years.

That might sound slightly mental but it is how I feel as if, my whole life, I have been waiting for her and now she is here and life is complete.

The first words I said to her were "Hello baby. We've been waiting for you such a long time.." I'm not sure where those words came from - we certainly didn't have a long and arduous battle to conceive her but now I think it was my way of just saying "Hey you, pretty girl who has been in my heart forever. It's so nice to finally hold you."
