Bella loves to hold Ez. He is pretty patient with her.
Bella is so excited about Christmas. She tells me that Santa is going to bring her a purse. She is such a girly girl! Just about every morning she asks if today is Christmas. These are going to be a long few weeks.

I recognize that I am, for this very moment in life, exactly where I want to be. And that feels good. I have everything that I want most in my life...a husband who is my best friend, a three year old daughter who makes me laugh by the things she says and warms my heart by telling me at least a dozen times a day that she loves me, and a little baby boy, who at 6 pounds and 6 ounces, fits so perfectly on my chest as we snuggle together. What more could I ask for? Sure, life isn't perfect. I wouldn't mind a few bucks more, a few pounds less, and a house that cleans itself but I know that I need to just enjoy this time in my life. I am generally, by nature, a happy person. But, there are times in my life that I long for things that don't easily come. I know that those times will come again...most likely in a year or two when I start to wonder where my next child is. But, not yet. For now...I am going to bask in the moment of feeling totally and completely fulfilled.
The other day Bella came into my room to wake me up (I was already awake thanks to Ez) exclaiming..."Mom, come look at the sky!" I had a feeling that she was noticing a sunrise for the first time so, feeling totally groggy and tired, I told her to tell me what she saw. She exclaimed with the excitement and wonder of a child, "The sky is pink, and orange, and purple! Come look!" I decided that no amount of rest would be worth missing a sunrise with my sweet Bella and so I dragged myself out of bed to enjoy it with her.
Today as we were driving in the car Bella said, "Mom, my bottom is making bubbles. Do you hear that?" I was busting up! What a creative way to describe it.
