Is FOREVER enough?

I've mentioned the Dixie Chics "Lullaby" on this blog before. This week, though, I've been overwhelmed by the chorus...

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

When I sit on my couch snuggling my sweet newborn girl, watching the man I love chase the most adorable blond headed boys I've ever seen, and enjoying my parents here to share so many of these first memories with us...I'm not sure FOREVER is enough! Granted, this week has been pretty far from real life for us. My house is clean (not by me), meals just magically appear and the entertainment committee is in full swing for the boys with my parents here and RRL taking some time off of work. Always the realist, I know there are rough days are ahead and this Mommy-of-Three thing may be far from glamorous in the near future, but I'm pretty sure even that can't change how full my heart is at this moment- absolutely bursting at the seams!
Because I've just been swept up in resting, nursing, snuggling and enjoying my family, I haven't taken time before now to organize my thoughts on baby sister's arrival and the details of her birth. I'll definitely do that soon, but for now here are some of my favorite pictures of the little miss from the last week. I could stare at them FOREVER.

PS- Can you tell that our theme around here has been "another day, another bow?" LOVING IT!
