I am having a seriously wonderful time with my nieces. Even the one who isn't quite born yet.
Lily is a little shy, but today she went kissin' crazy. She gave each of us multiple kisses with her big, smooshy toddler lips. My heart melted.
Maddie made my heart sing when it was her chance to pick the music - she suggested Johnny Cash.
And Gracie. That child may be a wee one, but she is strong. She's all about the rough and tumble. Her newest game is to fling herself around in my lap so that it's all I can do to stop her from catapulting to the floor and breaking her neck. Gracie makes my heart race.
This picture is not remotely posed. It takes all my strength to preserve her little vertebrae.
