But today, 2 years later, sitting here showing our daughter our wedding photos while rubbing the small pitter-patters in my belly, I cannot help but feel this moment, this very simple moment, is one of the best moments I have lived.  However, when entering parenthood we were innocently unaware of what that would mean and how...
