As you can see and if you have followed this blog over the past year and a half, i have joined a circle of incredible women and am forever grateful to be a part of this. these women speak my language. they FEEL every moment of their lives, the good, the bad, the frustrating and the so happy you can’t catch your breath ones. AND THEY SHARE THEM. these letters will move you through a range of emotions and be prepared to cry a little laugh a little and just plain ol feel grateful for your blessings. As you will see our lives are so very different and so very awesome in our own ways, in fact we are located all over the world..but we all share one simple common thread, we love our baby girls with every ounce of us. and after all i can’t imagine a better thing to share.

and don’t stop here please please continue on through our circle and head over to my amazing friend Rashmi…her images and her words always hit right in my mommy heart, she is amazing…
SO I HAVE TO PREFACE WITH the fact that I have no pics YET this month bc my “big computer” aka MacDaddy is sick and that’s where the pics are
my glitter and my glue,
I am always fascinated at how different yet the same the two of you are. I mean you were raised the same by the same people at practically the same time…I am sure there is some truth to genetics and I totally buy into birth order theories and all of that hoopla, which is probably why I love to watch you two so much…just sit back and observe who you are apart and what you create when you are together.
One of you wakes up with a smile, sunshine follows in your footsteps, you are constantly talking, singing, humming and did I mention talking. But its not so much what you say, as much as it is what you DO! you sprinkle sunshine everywhere you go! You, make a wish and blow out the candles…you, are more EMOTION than THOUGHT… YOU FEEL LIFE! You just have a sense of others feelings, you know when life has taken its toll on someone and they need a hug. The other night at dinner you quietly got up and hugged our waitress in the middle of her taking our order. It surprised all of us…but you just knew…and by her reaction, that is exactly what she needed at that moment in her day. You wear your heart on your sleeve and it scares me, it scares this glass half empty mama, to see such a fragile part of you exposed. I know “girls”, I know “8, 9 10 year olds” and “middle school girls”, I know “highschool girls” and I know the hurt that words can so easily cause to a girl that is ALL HEART, a girl that feels life and believes everyone is truly good. But just as much as I am scared I am lucky! I am so lucky to see that sunshine and watch you spread it. While I want to protect it and guard it I know better…because YOU are smiling when you make others smile, when you show others they mean something, and when you smile, I smile.
Then one of you is a little more cautious, you are a little more thought and fewer words (not too many less but fewer compared to your sister, ha). You question things…you were the child that constantly asked me “mama what is dat?” ”who is dat mommy?” The other night you asked daddy to do his “magic” trick over and over and over, I could see your wheels spinning you wanted to figure it out, you were determined! In the end you gave in and YOU BELEIVED HE REALLY WAS MAGIC, but we heard you later in the other room trying to create magic too whispering “abracadabra”. Well let me be the first to tell you baby girl, you are magic! People gravitate toward you, because they see your magic, they want to be a part of it! Sometimes I wonder if you are really shy or if its just you taking it all in, observing anyone new, trying to figure them out before you speak. You will always be the child who looks before she leaps! You are cautious and you take your time in everything but especially in giving your love…but that’s okay because when you give it its simply magical.
the thing is… this is why you are the perfect pair, a dynamic duo, and two halves to the whole… you are constantly watching out for each other and you are always there for one another, your best friend is always at your side…like I said in the beginning you are so much of the same and so different at the same time…you are both a little of glitter and a little of glue but the best part is when put together glitter and glue will always create a MASTERPEICE!
I love you my sparkly sticky beautiful mess!
