My dad isn't much of a photographer, that's usually left up to...well everyone else in our family. But bless him, he snapped this picture and I just love it.
It reminds me that for the last 17 and a bit months the three of us have had a special bond. We formed our own little exclusive club: our family. Soon we'll become a party of four, and things will never be the same again. It's a good thing, for sure...but it does make me want to savour the last few weeks of us, the way we've been for so long. I want to shower my big little girl with as much attention as I can, knowing full well that soon, she might be coming second. I want to read books and play chasey and eat yoghurt together so she knows how much she is loved, even if a smaller, squishier housemate will be taking up my arms in the near future.
Most of all the photo reminds me how much love is shared in that tight knit circle. No need to worry though, Baby B...there's plenty more room for you in this group hug. And really, you're already there. You're in our club.
Oh my. Can you tell I'm a little emotional?
