In Love

Oh, how I meant to be better about updating this blog this New Year. In an effort to at least, well, make an effort, I am doing a post with no pics, just a fun moment I want to be able and print and remember some day probably when the kids are teenagers and all hate each other... We have always known Aaron is head over heels in love with Leah, but he explained it really cute the other day... He said, "Mommy, when I look at Leah or even just think about Leah, my heart starts hurting because it beats so fast." The next day when we went somewhere without Leah he said "Mommy, I can't wait to get home. My heart is just crying not being with Leah." It was nice to be able to explain to him that that is how strongly mommy & daddy feel about him and an even better time to explain that God loves him even more. Our hearts are very full.

The Many Looks of Christmas

Casual Christmas
Cozy Christmas (provided by cousin Allison)

Cuddly Christmas
Nana bought Leah this precious one-piece outfit - she looks so sweet & cuddly in it.

These are from Leah's "casual wear" portion of her Christmas wardrobe. I certainly do not recall having some many holiday specific outfits with the boys. Leah actually had 3 Christmas dresses also (don't worry, I only bought one, the other two were hand-me-downs) but somehow I only managed to snap a pic of her in official dress (see post below). We are thoroughly enjoying having a baby girl!
