These two girls break my heart when I see their love for each other.  I never had a sister, or brother, for that matter, but witnessing these girls grow up more than makes up for it.  I feel their love for each other and it warms my heart that they will always have each other to lean on.

I LOVED her knee high socks.  Seeing those chubby little legs peek out from the socks nearly killed me.  Her cuteness is brimming.

Lila has such adoration for her big sis and Annie, oh Annie, is one protective big sister.  She guards her little sister fiercely.  Did I mention they melt me?

We moved back into our house today.  What a culmination of a few wild and tumultuous months.  It feels so good to have conclusion.  Ahh, home sweet home.  It's not what we had envisioned, but I'm okay with that too.
As I unpacked our things from storage I realized that there are no more baby things being kept.  Everything that Lila outgrows is given away.  I remember so purposefully keeping things when Annie was young for her future sibling.  Every dress, shoe, coat she outgrew, I put it away in case we had another little girl.  Lo and behold, we did.  Now I find myself mourning the disappearance of this purposeful task of collecting for our non-expanding family.  Our family is complete and I couldn't possibly be any happier.  I'm still allowed to get a bit mushy as I watch my girls grow out of babyhood, toddlerhood and into the rites and rituals of childhood, right?

Happy Mother's Day.
