Soon after Adrian and I got engaged, it occurred to me that I had felt, for the last time in my life, that magical feeling of new love. Never again would I experience a first kiss, or feel butterflies at the mere mention of his name. Never again would the world seem new, fresh and ready to be conquered. Never again would I feel invincible and terrified at the same time.
And then I became a mom. And now I feel butterflies every morning at the smile that awaits me, and every kiss feels like a first kiss. I've never felt so strong or so afraid, and the world seems as fresh and new as the day it was created. Every day is like falling in love for the first time.
So, when I say that I love this little guy, that's what I mean.
