It's late. BJ is lying next to me with a pillow covering his face to shield himself from the glare of my bright computer light. Ellie is asleep in her crib that now shares a room with us. I really should be asleep. But it's been such a good week, and we're really enjoying California.
I was sentimental today about being a mother. I dreamed last night that I had twin girls. I knew their names. I get so excited about the idea of having more children, and I also get nervous and protective of the relationship that I have and want with my sweet firstborn.
BJ's sister lives next door to us with her husband and four adorable children. Her kids love Ellie in a way I can't believe. I took little Berlynn to the park with us on Friday and she was a proud mama pushing Ellie Layne in the swing.
BJ and I get a kick out of how serious Ellie can be at times. These pictures are our evidence.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
