16 year old Lily, I apologize in advance for this post.
There are lots of things about being a mom that surprise me. The love I feel for my daughter. My ability to function (mostly) on 3 hours of sleep. The reckless abandon of my own hygiene, sorry Dingle.
One of the most surprising things has been how much I love Lily's "poop face". I don't just think its funny, it literally fills my heart with love! I have been trying for over a week to capture it, but the pictures just don't do it justice. The grimaced tight lips, the watery eyes, the flared nostrils...it is all so adorable! Oh and the noise she makes, I love that too! And no I am not talking about the toots themselves (although those are cute) she makes this quiet little grunt...so dainty!
