Circular Logic

When I was little, my dad used to tell me about how his dad (my granddad) would tell him, "You won't know how much I love you until you have children of your own." And then my dad would follow up with: "And you won't know how much I love you until you have children of your own."

My mom flew out to Boston to help us with the baby and the move about a week after Ella was born and she said my dad had said to her, after he'd seen Bart and my various posts about Ella over the past week, "Tell Janssen we were just as much as in love with her as they are with their baby."

Now that it's been nearly six weeks since her birth, I find myself telling Ella the same thing. "You won't know how much I love you until you have children of your own."

I never knew I could love a baby this much.
