Mother/Daughter Time

This weekend Jason was driving the car we bought from his sister home from Florida {God bless his heart} which meant Kenley and I had three whole days together - just the two of us. 

I had a million things I wanted to get done this weekend and figured with Jason gone I'd be so productive, but that wasn't the case, and I wouldn't change a thing. Kenley and I snuggled on the couch and watched Mickey, listened to Christmas music and pointed to ornaments on the tree, made cupcakes, had lunch with some lovely blog mamas and their daughters, met our friend's brand new baby Kayla, ate Mickey Mouse pancakes, played with toys, read books and snuggled some more.

This low key weekend really got me thinking about how lucky I am. The bond between a mother and a daughter is unlike any bond in the world and I feel so incredibly grateful to be able to experience it. Kenley is getting more and more affectionate and the little looks she gives me, the games we play, and the times she comes over to give me a hug and kiss for no reason make my heart explode into a million pieces. I look at her with such awe and can't really believe she's mine. 

I have always had a really wonderful and special relationship with my mom and I pray that Kenley and I will have the same connection. These days are going by so fast and Kenley is learning something new every day but I hope so much that weekends like these and the memories we make together will keep our bond strong forever.

I miss her so much on this Monday morning and wish I could spend all day every day with my little girl {with some breaks of course, us mamas need some breaks!}
