One special day

Today wasn't my brightest day. I think I've been just really tired, overwhelmed and rather confused. I couldn't carry a full conversation with Andrew without getting distracted real easy, I've been just dozing off throughout the day...


It has been hard to think, to plan, to be engaged, to enjoy of the fam.

So, we went to the chiropractor (yes, 3 days a week, to help this crooked back get back on track). As soon as we got back home, I crawled on the bed. I became a little ball of myself, and tried to hide behind my toothpicky arms. I also wanted to cry.

All of a sudden, Andrew walks in. He was bringing my little cupcake, since she was ready to eat.

 I had no strength whatsoever to move. But my baby needed her mamma. A couple of minutes later, Josiah comes in the bedroom to say "night night," give us kisses and high fives. 

That's when the magic happened:

Abi and Josiah started staring at each other in a way I've never seen before. 

He looked at her and smirked
She looked at him and smiled
He saw her smile and giggled
She saw him giggle and laughed

 You should have seen them! It was truly priceless!!! ( and where is the camera when you need it, right??)

No sadness can stand that JOY, so innocent, so pure, so full of life! My babies' smiles made my night. They got me out of my bed, out of my little ball. You'd always think of how much we do for them... but boy, it's amazing how much they do for us!

I feel BLESSED =)
