Emeline & Lucy Meet

I have lists and lists of things I want to write about regarding sweet baby Lucy and my big girl, too. As the ideas flood my brain I furiously write them in my iPhone notes so I won't forget.

But then more moments happen, and I'm all I need to write about that, too. And now the moments are stacking up so high I just don't even know where to begin. Some are fine being just for me, for us---but sometimes I need to write stuff down so I don't forget it. So I remember. So I can look back on those moments and remember my emotions and feelings. That's why I write about them. These moments.

Emeline meeting Lucy was insanely special to me. This little person we had talked about for months and months, finally on the outside, tangible to a 2 year old now, this little baby--here in the flesh, so she could finally lay eyes on her and kissy her and huggie her. It was and still is one of those moments I will remember forever. It makes me tear up just thinking about it.

I am so grateful that my husband got a little video of the first few times my girls were together. I think they will cherish this so much in the future.

And really? I think this speaks volumes. More than my words really can right now. All I know is--I'm in love with both of my girls so hard I didn't even know it was possible. My heart just expanded, and I love these little people with my whole heart, both of them.

I thank God for my sweet gifts. I really, truly do--because I don't deserve them, but I'm so grateful he saw me fit to be their momma.

Emeline meeting baby Lucy:

(you'll notice in the first video Emeline's eye was watering and hurting her--she had scratched herself with a stick at my parents the day before, and rubbed it so hard I think she ended up scratching her eye and making it worse--hence the watery, painful looking eye. The next day she was better :) )

And yes, I cry every time I watch this. My postpartum hormones are off the charts. :)

Happy Sunday.

  2. I just lost it when Emeline said, "it's my baby sister!" Of course, that could just be thanks to a case of the PMS... or both.

  26. So, so precious. And that music just put Paityn right to sleep, so don't be surprised if the number of views isn't crazy high by morning because I may be putting this on repeat for the next eight hours.

  28. Wow that was so sweet! What a beautiful moment. Boy did I cry! I am just thinking about when our 3 year old daughter gets to meet her baby sibling in December. I can't wait! Again this was just beautiful. There's something special about having two little girls. :)

  29. What a beautiful video. It brought tears to my eyes. I just had a miscarriage in June and my daughter would have been 26 months when the new baby was born. (I was also due on our 5th wedding annoversary) Watching this makes me think what it would have been like when she met her new sibling for the first time. Emeline is such a sweet big sister!!!

  30. You made Lo and me both cry. Just FYI. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, how sweet is that! It totally makes me cry my eyes out how sweet she is. I can't wait until my little boy gets a baby brother or sister. He will be sweet just like Eme is...can't wait to experience that. You are very lucky!

  38. Total tears...this is so beautiful! I also showed my 22 month old and tried to explain that she would get to meet her little brother or sister (in 32 weeks...haha...too early much?) just like Emeline. Will def be breaking this back out closer to D Day. :)

  41. Aww. I don't even have postpartum hormones and I can't stop crying. I am super emotional and this video is just the cutest/best one! This will be an amazing memory for them. It's just too sweet! Have a great day! :)

  42. I'm dying! that was so cute.

    question: LOVE your nail polish in the video, whats the name/brand?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok this is the sweetest thing ever! I have tears falling down my cheeks!

    I think you hit the jackpot with the age gap between the girls! Kate was still just a bit too young to really grasp what was going on and who Will was when he was born.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Simply adorable! And I'm crying too...without any hormones to blame it on :) Also, Lucy is a great name! We have a little Lucy at home too :) Sending lots of happiness your way!

  45. Gaaaah, so sweet and so great that you captured this.

    Eme with Lucy just melts my heart when I think about this for Mia.

    Wow! This made my Monday :)

  59. So beautiful! This helps take away some of the fears I have about going for #2 as I'm sure my now 16 month old would be similarly sweet in that type of situation.
