Jason made me a lovely dinner that we enjoyed in our home while Brooklynn had a nap, and he got me 2 dozen peach roses (a dozen for each year, I wonder if he'll add another dozen each year?) We kept things simple and it was everything I'd hope for and more.
I can't believe it was 2 years ago that Jason and I were sealed together for time and eternity. Sometimes it feels like it was only yesterday but then there are moments where we feel like we've been doing the family thing forever and not having him by my side seems like a lifetime ago. I with out a doubt believe that we bring some memories or feelings of relationships with us from heaven, and that is why we feel such instant and powerful connections with people in this life because the connection was already there once before. Having a baby in our home has been quite the spiritual journey so far and I have gained understanding and such great conviction of the bond of families, that they existed before this earth life and will continue on afterward, and also the immense love that binds them together and that our Heavenly Father posseses for each of his children. I am so greatful for my growth in that respect, it's been sort of life changing for me in the past few weeks.
Here are a few selections or moments captured over the last 3 weeks. I can't believe how fast she is growing. This morning after she was done feeding I was holding her and I am positive she looked at me and smiled, I know it's a good chance she had some gas but she was looking RIGHT at ME and I will keep that as a special memory :)
I love her BIG blue eyes. She is 10 days old in this picture.
