Last Spring when my baby sister called to tell me she was pregnant, I was devastated. She was young and unmarried and this was not the future I had wanted for her or prayed for her. It took me awhile before I could really be excited about the niece or nephew she was carrying. Of course now I could not be more in love with my adorable nephew Xander. And I could not be more proud of the mother Emily is. She amazes me. She has truly been a natural. I tear up just thinking about it. She has a long and rocky road ahead of her but she truly delights in her son. And she loves the interaction between Xander and Noah. I usually don't have such a problem with words but I just can't express how full my heart is when I see Emy with Xander. I love it.
Robin had a beautiful miracle on April 14th. Her road to motherhood has been a long, painful and now full of joy and blessings. I love seeing images of her (and Chris too!) with Aubrey Kate. This new mother and daughter duo is an answer to so many prayers. Aubrey Kate is truly a reminder of God's faithfulness and love for His children. I can not wait to see them in person!
(I steal pictures from other people's blogs. I know it is bad. But this is from Aubrey Kate's newborn shoot. Please click here to see more adorable pics and see the photgrapher's website information.)
I am so excited for these two! Happy Mother's Day Emily and Robin! I love you both!!
