Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home.

This blog post title is a quote from Mother Teresa. My Love has begun many days over...4 of those days being the days James and Madeline were conceived and born. It's sometimes incomprehensible how the heart works and can be filled with more love. And today looking at these pictures with my babies my heart is definitely over-filled.

All week Madeline was counting down the days until Mother's Day. And this morning she gave me a beautiful hand made card she created at school...

They had to sound out their answers and spell them on their own. It's says:
My mom's name is Malisa. (Melissa)
My mom is 24 years old. (32, isn't she kind?)
My mom makes the best brones. (Brownies, I made some yesterday.)
My mom loves R famile, (our family)
but she hates fiting. (fighting)
I love my mom because she bys me toys. (buys me toys)
Love, Madeline

Ahh that is super sweet! Love mothers day, I felt the same way when Ty was born I told my mom that my heart grew three sizes that day... I can't imagine how much more it will grow when we have another child... my heart is so full all ready! Hope you had a special day.
