My five favorites this week…
Gianna, getting fitted for her First Holy Communion dress by my mom (‘Oma’).
Aliya, who is the caretaker of the family. Melt my heart, every single time.
Gabriel, who absolutely delights in nature, from the bugs in our yard to the anemones in the sea.
Ezekiel, who with every passing day gets sweeter and more fun, and who trembles at any disapproval in my voice. (And then goes and gets into mischief again 14.3 seconds later.) Besides: boys in sweater vests? And glasses? Definitely a favorite!
And for this little freeloader, who has a strong heartbeat, regular development (despite the awful image) and an appointment for a better photo shoot around Thanksgiving 2014.
Be still, my heart.
Head on over to Hallie’s for more Five Favorites, although I’m gonna go ahead and say I win this week.
