A favorite...

Sam talked to Grace in my belly everyday and he loved to rub it and kiss "Baby Gwace". In fact, my water broke in the grocery store five minutes after he whispered, "Come out soon sister!"

As you can see, he was beaming as he held her for the first time. She was one hour old.

This picture makes my heart melt. I look at it, and I just see love. Love being given and received. Love that is completely new, but feels so very old. Love that has changed my life forever.

With all of the pictures that I take, it was hard to choose just one favorite as my entry in the 5 Minutes for Mom, Mother's Day photo contest. Take a look through yours and go enter! The prize is amazing!

Okay, maybe it is the song playing. Or just the sweet photos you posted on these last two posts, but I am crying!

So sweet!

I remember my daughter's reaction to her new baby brother. It is one of the fondest memories I have. She was just like your Sam -beaming.
