Miriam: One Month

Thursday, May 16, 2013

This life. This life is the one my heart has longed to live. Miriam, your arrival brought so much peace and an overwhelming feeling of contentedness.

You took hold of your mama, literally, from the very first seconds of your life.

We're not sure what our "complete" family looks like or what God has in store for us, but the majority of the time it looks like this, with your addition.

You shook off all of my anxiety about having a daughter . . . for about 1 hour and then it came back triple fold.

You have two of the most devoted big brothers. And while they may be more accustomed to your presence now, they are enamored still the same.

You've already changed so much from when you were first born!

Within the first 6 hours, you looked spitting image of Isaac, but in some images look so similar to Ezra.

There are definitely similarities between us though, my dear daughter. Especially through your eyes and mouth.

You haven't given us too many smiles, even when sleeping, but my oh, my, when you do!

And daughter of mine, that hair! You so surprised us with that one, although in looking back at my baby pictures I had just as much, just as dark.

I, not so secretly, hope that you also share my blue eyes, but am trying to down play it.

I think I've taken a million pictures of you, especially on my phone, but how can I not when this is my view?

Love you to the moon and back, sweet girl.

I can't get over that hair! She's precious, Leah. It makes me wonder if I will ever have a little girl to have 2 big brothers as well. :) (I was...er...am one of those girls!)
