I continue to be amazed at the power of my love for my daughter.

It is completely overwhelming. It is extra-rational. I have never experienced anything like it. She doesn't speak English. She and I have no common interests (does eating count?). We have minimal shared experiences. But she is completely fascinating. I wish I could spend a lot more time interacting with her. It is so much fun to show her how everything works. And when she's amused, she smiles this insanely happy, Stevie-Wonder-style grin that engages her entire face. I rarely remember being that happy, but seeing her that happy is a pretty close second. It's infectious.
Which is why I am so cheerful and bubbly these days. Right?
