I Love You, Mommy

Today, my astounding two-year-old looked me straight in the eyes and, clear as a bell and unprompted, pronounced, "I love you, Mommy"

Not only is my baby stringing together 4-word phrases a mere 2 months after hearing English for the first time, but they're simply the most perfect words a mommy could ever hear!

This heart-stoppingly beautiful moment was followed shortly by Sasha being on the receiving end of a bite on the arm so hard that it left a mark for hours, so I'm not pretending that our job as parents is done here (as always, thank you, toddlers, for brutal reality checks).  But for a few moments there I got to enjoy the blessed assurance that we are truly on the road to becoming family.

Ups and downs, right?

Oh my goodness, you need to give that girl a great big hug (just wear a turtle neck just in case!) How sweet is she? And what is a little bite between sisters really?

Aw, so sweet. (Not the last part so much.)

Oh, I love it! She's not a vampire, tho, they profess love before biting. The kids are adorable.
