Happy half-birthday Rachel

Rachel is six months old today. We are feeling blessed and very lucky to have her. She is our little babydoll, our little ray of sunshine, and our "sugar and spice and everything nice". She completes our family. This morning, Richard grabbed both the littles in his arms and told me with a huge grin on his face, "These two fellas are mine." What joy they have brought to our life, just by being in it and by being who they are.

Babydoll is crawling. She's still very much a beginner, her tummy is not always off the ground. Nevertheless, she can get to where she wants to be, whether she has to go forward, backwards or sideways. 

She is able to verbalise her feelings accurately - she knows a few words, including "Ai......yah!". 

We love you, darling Rachel. You bring us happiness every single day.

I'm finding it a little difficult to write this post because my thoughts are stuck on Friday's events at Sandy Hook. As a parent and simply as a human being, I'm shocked, saddened and sickened by the senseless tragedy. I don't have anything constructive to say. I just want to hug my children as tight as I can and keep them close for as long as I can.
