Bit of Heaven

Tessa brings me more joy than anyone. Not a huge revelation, I know but still, I can't believe how much happiness she adds to our family.

A few weekends ago Aaron and I were discussing "finances" and "the economy" (both ours and the country's). Talk about a bummer of a Friday night conversation. Until Tessa decided we needed to take turns attacking her with kisses. Suddenly we transferred to a blissful Friday night moment.

This little bundle of love had also struck a few days previously. I mentioned a while ago that our Bishop gave me a blessing to strengthen me in my anxiety. Aaron and Tessa joined me in his office and as he concluded I felt comforted and reassured. I stood to leave and with no prompting from me or Daddy Tessa launched herself into my arms for a bear hug. Forget about any self composure I had.

I've never felt so loved.

Where did we get this kid? Both of her parents are selfish stinkers, I kid you not. We don't deserve her, but I'm crazy happy to have her.

People think how crazy it is we love those toddlers that cause so much trouble and headache, but it's actually crazy how much they love us despite how often we get after them, stick them in timeout and even spank them. Thank goodness for the love and forgiveness of a child:)

She is adorable. Simply adorable. I think that sometimes it takes kids to put our perspectives back in order.

Case in point: This afternoon Matthew heard a commercial with Pres. Obama talking about "houses under water", and Matthew said "MOOOOOOOM. A House under the water...that would be AWWWWWWWWWEEEEESOME! We could swim in our house!!!!!!!!!!!

You know, I think those two little girls of yours will have such a connection, actually they probably already do...

I love it that Aaron helped you with your goal...that is way sweet!

Also, tell him thanks for the compliment on my Arch photography, It made my day. :)
