To my girls,
It’s been 7 years since I took this photo of you in Rocky Mountain National Park. It seems like a lifetime ago but I still remember it so vividly. One month prior, our au pair arrived from Paraguay and it was a lifeline for me to be able to take you on outings and hikes with her help. Thank you, Carolina! I hope you get to meet her some day…
Look at how chubby you used to be! It only made you that much more fun to cuddle with. :) But don’t worry, now that you are all skinny limbs and boney butts, I still love to snuggle with you. You both bring so much joy and light into my life that I am thankful everyday that we persevered to bring you into this world.
I love you both more than words can say.
Happy Mother’s Day to me!
