My Dear Children,
This year has seriously flown by and I can’t believe it is almost over! There have been many long and exhausting days but I truly do have so much to be thankful for. You both are such sweet babies and I am truly blessed to be your mommy. I am in constant awe of how much you love each other and it is so sweet to see you grow even closer now that you can play and interact a little bit more. It makes my heart so happy the way both of your faces light up when you see each other for the first time each morning. Daniel, it is so sweet to see how much you love your baby sister. You are always so sad when it is time to finally say goodnight at the end of the day and you sometimes even cry and ask, “B Emma go ni-night in my room?” which just completely melts me. Emma, you have just learned how to kiss and it is seriously the cutest thing ever as it is more of a sloppy open mouthed headbutt, ha ha…but you are so proud of your new skill and love showing us all affection. Just this afternoon, I was watching you both while you played together and you both started hugging and kissing each other and giggling. I couldn’t help but join in your infectious laughter and hug and kiss you both and thank you for being such sweet babies.
I am so glad I was able to capture these images of you together as they are such a sweet visual representation of your relationship right now. I am going to make a point to print and frame some of these so I can smile whenever I see them and be continually reminded of how blessed I am every single day (especially on those days that are extra challenging).
I love you my sweet babies.
