4. Going into her room to wake her in the morning and seeing her first smile of the day

8. Having someone look at me the same way Roo does.
9. Having a greater appreciation for all the Moms out there. (Not like the lady in the parking lot today who just watched me balance a GIANT fed-ex package, 2 bags, and a baby while I tried to pick up my car keys. Thanks a lot lady, just drive off in your BMW)
10. Seeing the sheer joy in her face when she see her Dada and watching his heart melt when he see her.
11. Getting to read all the cool kids books my mom use to read to us.
12. Being a part of the "mom" club.
