I listened to this song over and over right before I had Cambell. It is silly, but she really is a new soul in this strange world. Graham and I have the blessing and intense responsibility of introducing her to her world that will sometimes be kind, other times cruel, and always strange. I echo her father in the pain I feel even looking ahead to the ways this world will scar her. Graham and I can only do so much to protect her little soul. This little innocent creature is growing every day. I cannot believe how big she is getting and how every day she seems more full of life than the previous day. I love being able to meet her needs. I love getting to witness every smile and coo. I love that she knows and trusts me. There is a sweetness about her as her personality continues to emerge. I have loved her since I discovered her existence. The love grew more intense when I got to hold the little being that had been kicking my insides in my arms. It continues to grow as our interactions grow. She did nothing to earn her parents' love. Nor will she ever do anything to lessen our love for her. I have only been a parent for 12 weeks, but I have understood so many mysteries about God's love for me as his child in these short weeks. It is incredible. I have so much to learn from this little soul.
