Today little Stephen III is 2 days old. I fall more and more in love with him with every single picture! I've known Hollie since I was 12 or 13 years old. She was 14 or 15. Lindsey was a year younger than me- bitch! Now we are all married and Lindsey is the mother of my heart, Muffin, and Hollie is a new mommy. Heather, the oldest sister, is the mommy of twin 7-year olds
, Grace and Emma, and a 2-year-old who will be 3 on November 27th
. I grew up with them, they were/are my sisters. It's very strange to just wake up and be grown up. That's how it feels sometimes.
I am so overwhelmed with emotion when babies are born. Even babies I don't know get to me! Of course, babies I know really just send me over the edge. I have been through quite a few pregnancies with family members and friends over the years. It's an amazing thing and I love the experiences
. I love going through the milestones- ultrasounds, growing bellies and babies, finding out the sex/wondering about the sex, discussing the names, buying clothes and gear, etc... I love the "she's going into labor" and waiting in the waiting room, then meeting that gorgeous, precious gift. It never gets old. It is always miraculous and I always feel God.
So, let me finish up with the "mushy" (like Lindsey calls it) and show you pictures of JOY!
