I am falling more and more in love with Miss Emily everyday. Brad made the comment the other night that he felt like she was "really part of the family now". She is developing her own little personality and quirks that keep us smiling and laughing. She is simply beautiful...from her long eye lashes to her sweet little pouty lips. Her hair is hilariously gorgeous and often gets bows stuck in it that her sister won't wear. She is so verbal. She loves to coo and talk to us any chance she gets. She loves to lay and look at me and have conversations during her wake time. She seems a lot more verbal that Caroline was at this age. She is so smiley and happy during her "prime time" but then lets you know very quickly when that time is up and she's ready to be swaddled and laid back down. She likes to suck on her fingers and sometimes makes the LOUDEST noises doing it. I can't help but laugh out loud. Emily Anne, you are such a blessing to your family.
One of my greatest blessings in life has been having an older sister. I am SO thankful that I get to see Caroline and Emily enjoy one another as sisters. There is a bond like no other that sisters have- a best friend that you get to have your entire life no matter what. I love taking their pictures now because I know that years and years down the road they will be able to look back at them and know that this is when their friendship began. My sister and I used to always sing (and probably make up dances) to the song "Sisters" from the movie White Christmas. That song seems to be continuously playing in my mind when I see them together. They are blessed and don't even know it yet...but soon they will find out how much JOY they will bring one another.
