July really felt like a waiting period for us - our days were slow and measured. We knew any day our little girl would come. But all of the calendar milestones came and went; extended family arrived in town... no baby, her sister's birthday... no baby, her due date...no baby, the full moon... no baby.
Finally, on a foggy Sunday afternoon at the very end of July, our family grew from four to five, and our hearts will never be the same. Honestly, she brings out the best in all of us - my oldest daughter is endlessly calm and attentive toward her and my now middle babe carries her new role as big sister with pride and gushing love. None of us can get enough.
I'll share another post with the endearing details of the first days of sweet Violet Rae. If you want to know when that story is published, I invite you to connect with me here.
But for now, most importantly, my favorite ten images for this month are the ones that define all of us and the love we share as a family. My cup runneth over.
