I've had many pity-party-tears over how Lilah's issues have, do, and will affect the brother/sister relationship.  More specifically, it breaks my heart that he can't love on her or play with her...........
as I had "envisioned".  
But, look how sweet this vision is:






In this last one you can see Garrett saying "look", as in "look, I just dropped her head":) The photo session that had required mucho bravery on my part (not to mention Lilah's) ended then. But, I think it was worth it.  Love these babies! Has anyone else noticed that when you are seeing your kids together, your feelings more than double (as in 2+2=>4)?
On a "same but different" (totally different) note...I am fired up! 6 more days until The Bachelor finale!!! I can hardly contain my excitement.  Sorry to disappoint, but I am addicted to "crack" tv!  Tonight: The Real Housewives of ______ (not to be confused with Desperate Housewives, which I also watch).  Don't make fun of me...it's therapeutic.

everyone has to have a way to decompress!
such sweet babies and a brave mom to let Garrett have full reign of holding sister...I'm sure he felt so special. Glad that Paul is back in TN again, but super proud of you for making it while he was gone. You are a super mom/woman/wife for sure!

What cute pictures! I love that Garrett is holding Lightening. John is the same way, although he usually needs at least two cars in his hand. Lilah looks really good. The fact that she is smiling and grabbing at his face is surely a good sign..at least somewhat, right??. Take care!

Love, Sarah
