Aurora truly does love her Daddy. The other day when he got home from work and Aurora saw his face and heard his voice she became more alert and her whole face lit up in a way I hadn't ever seen before.

Aurora has about 5 or more onesies that say "I love daddy" or "Daddy's princess" etc... and she didn't have a single one that said anything about Mommy until so-named-Mommy decided she wanted equal representation and went out and bought a onesie that said "Mommy's Lovebug." I couldn't find one that said "I love mommy." Sigh. So it begins...

I always knew Jared would be a good dad but he is more than that. He is exceptional!

I have heard many stories from others that when they were with their future spouses they wanted to be better, to be their best selves. I didn't quite feel like that with Jared, I always felt like I could completely be myself and that self was accepted, valued and loved.
When I'm with Aurora, I find myself wanting to be better and then when I witness Jared interacting and loving Aurora, the feeling grows stronger to almost bursting. At times, I wonder how much motivation to be your best self can a person take? :)
