I love you day

the computer is still being funky...but I sort of figured out a way to make pictures work again.  and in celebration here are my daughters.  charlotte with nothing but a diaper, her usual uniform.  eden with messy, two-day-old braids and pajamas (she'd had on since nap time).  we were outside being a family this evening and I couldn't help but take too many pictures of them. 

I can hardly believe that in 5 short days our sweet charlotte will be one entire year old.  before she was born I wondered what it would be like to love two people as much as I loved eden.  I knew it was quite possible...because my mom for sure loves me as much as my other 4 siblings.  but I couldn't really understand it all happening. 

and now...now I get it.  my heart bursts and overflows and gushes with love for those pretties.  and it didn't take almost a year to get that way...took about however long it was for the soundwaves of charlotte's first cry to reach my ears.

eden told me that today was "I love you day".  she kissed me a million times at the dinner table.  charlotte got jealous and so I held her, too.  an all too perfect ending to eggplant parmesan with feta a la crockpot for suppertime.

I love your blog and really love this post. Family is just so much fun. And I've heard that, about loving your other children just as much, but it's so hard to imagine with just one...crazy...
