I love watching Jane discover the world. Every day it seems she's fascinated by something new. Yesterday she just sat and studied my face - I was in heaven. She's such a wiggly and curious little girl it was such a treat to just sit watch her watching me.

Lately she's been discovering her hands and how they work - so the quest to find just the right toys has been a fun one. These fruit rattles from Uncommon Goods have become a favorite. They are perfect to chew on and they make the sweetest little sounds. A win win all around.

Every time I look at this photo, I cry. The day we met our little Jane Elizabeth Jones has forever changed my life. It was the sweetest day of our lives. Being her mother is such an honor.

I've decided I'm not going to post her birth story—it was such a beautiful, spiritual, heart wrenching and at times frightening experience...the details of the day are just too personal to share here. But I will say, when Cree brought our little girl to me and I saw her sweet face for the first time and felt her little cheek against mine, I've never felt so connected to any other human being on this earth. It was almost as if I'd recognized her...like our souls new one another. She was mine and I was hers. Forever.

Baby Jane, I love you to the moon and back. May you always remember that.
