estee, estee, estee

this little girl of mine is no doubt a handful... just so much personality packed in to her little frame.

but so, so sweet when she wants to be.

sisters...

i can't get enough of this photo... makes me want to cry every time i look at it.
it was taken the day after simone got out of the hospital, estee was so happy to have her back home.
i just hope i did the photo justice with this layout...

the one and only...

pretty sad that this is the one and only photo i have of simone and i.

a self portrait that is less than great.

but i must say, i still love it.

just because i love her so much i guess.

and her hair all over my chin :)

her first layout...

three months old and finally her first layout... it's simple but i of course enjoyed doing it.

i have been keeping my hands busy in my studio every spare second i have, making bracelets for the girls, putting together estee's new album, starting on my europe album... having way too much fun!

so here it is (i know its a terrible scan!)

and a few of her in honor of her 3 month birthday that was on the 5th... better late than never i say.

blessed...

our little simone was blessed today, what an amazing gift she is to our family and how grateful i was today standing there holding her in my arms looking at her so healthy and happy... the emotions hit me hard, really hard. i am so grateful that she is my daughter, so grateful that i am the one that gets to be her mom.

she was blessed in the same dress i was blessed in as a baby, my aunt lane made them for ann and i before she even knew my mom was having girls. i just treasure this dress.

here she is on her very special day, what an angel...
