my girl....

a year ago in about 2 hours from now my water broke.... and this amazing little girl entered our lives. i love this picture because it's when we first met...even though she had been occupying a good chunk of space in my body for the previous 9 months...this was the first time we laid eyes on each other. and i still remember our instant connection. 

for me... after i had grant i was more anxious about trying to figure out how to be a mom that i feel like it took me a little longer to really feel that bond with him.
but brecken...hers was instantaneous. i felt something from her that touched my soul. i know that sounds cheesy... but it's true. and i felt that bond instantly... and if i'm being honest... i still feel that with her. i don't know how to describe it, and i keep writing sentences and erasing them because i don't know how to say it. but she is a special girl. she has lit up all of our lives. often times norman and i will be talking about her or playing with her and one of us will just say... gosh...i just love her so much!!!! 

there is just something about her little personality and her interactions with me and others that makes something in my soul so happy. anyway..... i can't describe it so i'll stop trying to. hah...i'm just feeling all nostalgic tonight because i'm just thinking about how almost a year ago exactly she changed our lives for the better and i am so glad my heavenly father trusted us with such a beautiful soul. 


below are pictures that i found that i never posted of the first bath i gave her...with grant helping. :) i think even grant feels what we feel about brecken. he loves his sister and it's so fun to see them together. having kids really is the best...ever. let's have some more, norm..k???? k... 

(by the way...don't want this post to sound like i love grant any less than i love brecken hahah... i'm just expressing how precious my little girl is to us, too).  :)
