august 22 - memories

Four years ago we came together as a family. Holding you in my arms, I felt like a piece of me that had been lost was finally put back into its rightful place. It has been an amazing journey, every minute of it a gift I treasure in my heart. Thank you darling girl for being who you are and helping to teach me to be myself.

I never tire of this video ... we hadn't seen Cowgirl walk and weren't sure if she had the muscle strength to do so. So these steps, these hugs and first giggles thrilled us beyond belief. And needless-to-say, the next day she ran circles around us. She continues to amaze and dazzle us with her brilliance - and crafty ways!

Happy Family Day dear one. I love you more than every grain of sand on every beach, every leave on every bush and tree, every star in the sky plus one.

Wo ai ni.

    I've been debating adding videos to my blog but maybe someday soon I'll have the courage. Watching your video has certainly been a treat! What a nice way to end my lovely weekend. Now I'm off to slip into bed and watch my own baby sleep. Motherhood is the greatest blessing in the world isn't it? :D
