She Melts Me… Literally

This little girl… 

well I honestly can't even finish the sentence… she just means so much to me that I don't have the words to explain it… and it's not that I don't adore my boys because I do and nothing can replace those relationships between mother and son, but she melts me in a completely different way… a sweet and sassy and cute and spoiled rotten with girlie things kind of way… it is just awesome and seriously indescribable.

This last one just gets me… right there… and literally chokes me up for the words to describe how much I adore her. She is why I can't focus on scrapbooking or editing photos lately except when she is asleep because I literally can't stop squeezing and kissing those cheeks and cuddling her and playing dollies with her and following her around in her "ship shops" (flip flops) and "oh piffy cutes" (oh pretty cutes — necklaces and bracelets and bows)… I will have countless days in the future when she is grown up and gone to scrapbook the days away and edit photos but I will not have unlimited days of enjoying this… they go too quickly and are too precious and I don't want to miss one of them…

I love her…

    Well if those eyelashes aren’t to die for!!!! That’s wonderful that you are able to set aside your work and hobbies to dote on her. I should take a page from your book as I have two little princesses myself. And you’re right, the future will hold ample time to tend to work and hobbies. Thanks!

    OMG, can I have her? Pretty please with the longest eyelashes on earth on top? She is precious beyond words. My reds would gobble her up in an instant. No wonder you have no words left, they dropped right out of your mouth!! Again, your photography is so beautiful too. I’m really enjoying your online class right now. πŸ™‚

    Stunning photos, She is gorgeous! And I know exactly how you feel, I have 3 boys, and there is just something about my youngest that I can not explain either, he is the sweetest, cutest little thing and has just the best personality ever, He is the most like me and I think that may have something to do with it! I can just cuddle and squeeze him all day long, but then again, he is the only one that will still let me! πŸ™‚ Keep the pictures coming Maggie, they are amazing!

    Oh so cute. I have a picture showing off Keaton’s eyelashes and it’s my favorite! She is precious! I got my pics in the mail yesterday. They are great. Are you sending the cd separate? I’m already thinking about Christmas cards.

    Oh Maggie, she is a true doll! She looks so grown up already! You are so right about there being time in the future to scrapbook and edit photos. My little sassy princess just turned 6 and it was literally in the blink of an eye. I have stacks of photos and mounds of unfinished crafts, but my little ones are here now… and it won’t be that way forever. Enjoy the precious time you have right now with your babes… you will never regret it! πŸ™‚
