gonna be alright

Yesterday when I asked Belle if she wanted to drink her pre-nap milk by herself (sometimes she likes to be independent) or if she wanted to snuggle with Mommy (usually she wants to "nuggle"), she said, "I want to lay by Lydia." (Her complete sentences crack me up.) I had to ask her to repeat herself a few times because although she has never once been mean or shown any malice to her sister, she's never wanted to share her coveted milk time with her. That time is generally Mommy time, sometimes Daddy or Grandma if either is around. But she was serious. She climbed up on the couch and snuggled next to her baby sister. And then my eyes got all weepy and my heart did that funny warm and fuzzy thing, and suddenly I knew...



...This is going to work.

Um, you kinda made ME get all weepy... here in my quiet cubicle. :)

(Had to delete the last comment... poor spelling is NOT okay with me.)

OK, so yes... this is definitely my favorite (after reading the backstory how could it not be?!?!?!)
