So, almost a year in the making, "the babies" (who the family conversations have revolved entirely around for the past year) were scheduled to finally meet! And to make it the ultimate girls weekend Lolly flew out from Idaho. She hadn't had a chance to meet Charlie yet, despite being home through practically my entire pregnancy. She had endured my food aversions and cravings, complaining, and last trimester - in which I dragged her to the mall and made here try on all the clothes I wished I could fit into. She deserved to meet the reward.
Ugh, these babies. I didn't know that you could love your sibling's child as much as your own. Charlie still has her newborn-ish-ness, but Emma is a full on baby. Gurgling, giggling, baby. It's so fun to watch her meet the milestones Charlie is on the brink of.
