New Additions

I must explain my lack of attention to the blog over the last few days. The most amazing and wonderful gift has been delivered to my family. My beautiful little nieces were born on June 25th, and are healthy, happy, and already the love of my life.  These two little girls have been long awaited so when I got the call from my sister-in-law that today was, “the day,” I first screamed, almost fainted, jumped up and down, teared up, and then realized I needed to go. After I hung up the phone I ran around the house trying to find everything I would need; camera, charger, cell phone, contacts, make-up, ect. Needless to say I left the house with work-out clothes, a pair of high heels, and two pairs of jeans. Typical.  
When I finally arrived from Dallas to Houston I was met at the elevator by my mom and brother, who was still wearing his scrubs with their foot prints stamped on it. I immeditely lost it. Something about seeing your big brother, the one who protected you your entire life, wearing two sets of little footprints and knowing that he will now be protecting his daughters, was a moment I can’t explain. I am not sure I have ever seen him look this kind of happy. It is a moment I will never forget. 
Since my sister-in-law was recovering we first went to see the little girls. To this day, as I write this, I am tearing up. Seeing something you have been waiting so long for in person and knjowing they are healthy, with five fingers and five toes, and they are safe, is overwhelming. My mom and I stood there and just stared without saying a word.  I was in love. It is crazy how much you can care for someone with one look but as I stared at them I felt both insanely protective and excited. I can’t wait to watch these girls grow, be there for monumental life experience, and teach them what I can. 
I am back at the hospital today, holding and loving my two little nuggets. All I can say is, my heart is full. So so full!
