This is one of my favorite photos of my daughters and I. It’s not a great angle, and it’s far from perfectly posed, but it’s us, for real.
On my left: my crazy, energetic, always-excited 3-year old. Strong-willed to the max, a true leader, and a heart bigger than all of us combined. I sometimes struggle to keep up with her, but every day I’m amazed at her intellect, sense of humor, and ability to speak truth to what we grownups believe are complicated situations.
And on my right: the 6-week old. The dream baby. The one who quietly fits in. Who turns whenever she hears her sister’s voice. The one who doesn’t seem to have a care in the world - as long as she’s held and loved and cared for.
These are my girls, and I love them to death.
