I try to love every day. but, I especially loved today. I woke up to a hello kitty mother's day card decorated with a million stickers as well as a homemade one...you know, the construction paper kind. I also got a new bible because that is what eden told pete she wanted to get me for mother's day. she just thought of it in her 3 year old mind. I'm really excited to have the message translation now.
yesterday eden kept whispering happy mother's day in my ear and then asking if it was mother's day yet. she had those cards hidden under her bed, and I've never seen her so excited. this was the first mother's day that she actually understood what was going on. she was so proud to give me things and shower me with hugs and kisses. even with stinky morning mom breath.
It was also my first mother's day with charlotte mae outside the uterus. she has a cold and was a runny nosed and eyed baby, but was still as sweet as ever.
it will never be anything but miraculous when I look at my girls and try to comprehend that they are mine. well, of course God's. but...came from me. with help from their dad.
I love eden's curly blond hair. her striking blue eyes. how she remembers everything. how she gets in trouble for trying to pick up charlotte 20,000 times a day. her voice. her hugs.
I love charlotte's nose. her rolls. her breath. her smile. and how lately she won't go anywhere without this plastic green ball. sleeps with it, bathes with it, takes it to target. I love how her eyes light up when her sister or dad come in the room.
I loved today.
