A MIracle!!


Tonight a miracle happened. Hallie fell asleep in my arms! She NEVER falls asleep in my arms, or anywhere besides a bed. But tonight as I was feeding her, I looked down and she was out. I was so excited. I LOVE to snuggle my babies and neither of them are snugglers. They both are very wiggly and would pretty much rather do anything than sit still and and snuggle up to me.

I felt like my little snuggle time was my reward for the week that those "sweet " little angels put me through last week.
So tonight I had a little bit of heaven as I held my baby, stared at her perfect little body, and enjoyed the feeling of her close to me.

I love feeling the rush of love come into my heart when my kids fall asleep w/ me. I love them all the time, but it is a whole new feeling when you realize they trust you enough to fall asleep w/ you. I love it!

Hey there. I'm sad I didn't get to talk to you last night at Anne Marie's. Next get together for sure. I love reading your and your husband's blogs. Your Hallie is so sweet.

How beautiful! I really don't know that there's a better feeling than snuggling with your kids. I hope they will do it forever. It was so fun seeing you again last night.

Hey Lessley...I love cuddling with babies (when they let you). Laynee will still come and cuddle with me sometimes but I miss those sweet little baby faces!! Hallie is so cute!!

My kids are not snugglers either, so I know what a treat that is. I am so glad that you brought her to Anne Marie's house. She is beautiful. I have seen pictures of her, but she is even cuter in real life. What a sweet little girl.

Hey Less! Too cute! If you want a baby to snuggle, you can borrow Sierra....she loves to be held and cuddled....for now!
Also, I'm sending out invites this week for Sierra's blessing on Feb. 17th. Hope you guys can make it!
