Mommy's girl

Talia and I have always had a special relationship. From the time of her birth, she has looked at me with a look that says, "you're my mommy, and I love you." Both my Mom and Grandma commented on it when she was just a couple of months old. This has recently turned into a bit of an issue at my house...considering if I lay down for a nap, she comes to the door, tapping on it and crying "Mommy....MOOOOOMMMMMMYYYYYY," when I leave her home with anyone, including Cole, she cries for me at the door. I'm the first person she comes to for comfort, and she doesn't like me to leave, or to leave me. This is slightly irritating to her father. I know it's just a stage, and most kids go through it. I just hope she always loves me this much.

Kimberly is the exact same way with me, but it has been that way since the week after she came home from the hospital. She has been attached to me her whole life. I love how she shows me she love me. I love the bond we share and I really hope it never changes either.
