Do you ever....?

Do you ever look at your children and just want to cry because they are so beautiful and amazing? (I'm sure you do, I just need to remember how it felt tonight so I'm posting it.) This evening I sat on the livingroom floor with Bethany and Mallory and our Happy Meals....we were starting to watch the movie Enchanted together for Mommy/Daughter time. Brad was at work, and I've been feeling pretty yucky today....so, I took some DayQuil and decided to just be with my girls and not try to get anything done while we enjoyed ourselves. As I was sitting next to them, I would hear Mallory laugh at a cute part of the movie and hear Bethany sing all of the words to the songs and I found myself watching them watch the movie instead of watching it myself. I was in awe of them. I look at Bethany and see how much she's grown in what seems like such a short time. I can't believe I can hear her picking up the harmony in the songs, and I remember how absolutely incredible every minute was when I was expecting her and then after she was born. I would spend every minute of the day looking at her and kissing her cheeks and loving that I was at home with her. Sometimes I forget what that felt like, but tonight I remembered as I looked at her. I love her so much! I looked at Mallory and thought of how much joy she brings me everyday with her huge-toothy smiles and her bouncy curls as she runs around the house and dances. I seems like I've had her in my life forever, and I love her more than I could have ever imagined. I got out my camera when they started dancing tonight.....here they are.....

How precious is that? Your sweet girls are so great dancing together. I do so love to sit and watch Emma. 2 days ago I went in the backyard to check on Emma and she was hanging upside down on the playset and Aly (our dog) was nose to nose with her. Emma was giggleing and talking to her. It was so sweet.

So cute! You'll have to show this to them when they're older and fight with each other- remind them how much they really love each other!

You have very special daughters. Way to live in the moment. I need to remember to take more of those moments and let the dishes wait until tomorrow.
