Samara

I am so in love.

I wondered when I was pregnant if it was possible to love someone as much as I love Payton. I was worried I would take favorites. I never thought the emotions would be so big, so overwhelming again.

I have fallen in love all over again. And yes, the term "fallen" in love is perfect. I have loved her since conception but over the last few days have fallen in love with her all over again. And with Rod, and Payton. I am enamored with our family.

Nothing, absolutely nothing could describe my joy. I'm tired, a little sore, and overwhelmed often, but it is with great joy, love, and peace that I move one foot ahead of the other and tackle the next day.

Oh and Yes, her name is Samara. We still haven't settled on the middle names, but it's nice to have a name to call her. And she suits it.

it is a perfect name. You have loved that name for so long.
She is perfect. That is my fear. That IF we decide to have more if I would love the next as much. You know, I worried too when I saw her. I love Pay so much but I could feel a love for Samara right away too.
You look peaceful. LOVE YOU!!
