What a glorious thing to have in life! Sisters are the best friend you could ever have, they are bound to you, through blood. They are there for you, no matter what.
In our life we are given siblings, to help us, to be there for us. But there is no bond stronger than that of sisters.
These are some happy girls, Gwen is starting to really smile and seems happy. She is a very serious baby most of the time. She looks at the world with a concentrated stare, trying to figure it all out.
Rhayn, well I don't remember how she was at this age. That makes me sad. I didn't write down all of the little things. Now I wish I had. I wish I had a blog then, I wish I had written about her infancy and how I felt. It would be awesome to look back now. I wonder if Rhayn will think I loved Gwen more, because I wrote so much when she was tiny. I know that sometimes I think my mom must have loved dacheese most because she kept a detailed journal of her first few months. But I know that isn't true now. Now I know that it only meant that by the time dacheese came around she really appreciated that time, and wanted to be able to remember it.
The other day, my mom and I went to the grocery store. She asked me if I wanted to leave Gwen with Stacey. Now, I love Stacey and know she would just hold Gwen and it would be all grand. BUT I am NOT ready to be parted with my little bug, not for even an hour (except while taking a soaky bath at home and Gwen is downstairs with daddy, but he needs a little baby time, too.) My mom told me its because I've been through this and know how quickly they grow and you only get this tiny one for a short while. She is right. I want to enjoy every moment of this time, every coo and gurgle, every feeding, every diaper change. I am selfish, and I don't want to share my baby at all. SO THERE... I might let you hold her for a minute, but I want her back quickly! She is mine.
