I can't even believe how lucky we are to have such a sweet baby. This little girl is the best sleeper and she has been so happy. She has made my life so easy. I have had a lot of time to think about motherhood over these past few weeks. It is still so overwhelming for me to think that this little girl is mine. Over the past 3 and a half years I have completely lived through my brother and sister in-law. I have loved and obsessed over their children. My sister Kate and I always refer to them as "my babies". Whenever I had free time I was there spending time with them. Now I look at this sweet baby of mine and I can't get over that she is my baby. Mike and I made her and she is all mine.
For months I wondered what Violet would look like and what kind of personality she would have. I have loved getting to know her more and more each day. I have had a few moments where my emotions have gotten the best of me. It is hard to have this sweet girl and be so far from family. I want her to have a good relationship with them and I want her to know them. It has made me value my family more then I ever did before and especially my mom. It will be a good growing time for us and a time where mike and I will strengthen our relationship. For now we will just love on this sweetie pie as much as we can.
