Their Perfect Time Together

Their Perfect Time Together

A baby lays asleep on the couch snuggled in her travel bassinet while her older sister plays games on her iPad, learning her ABCs and singing along with songs as they came up in her game on ABCMouse.Com. The TV plays a child’s show but neither baby nor child pays attention to it. Their mother sits tiredly on the couch, her eyes lovingly watching her baby sleep for a few minutes before her exhausted gaze shifts to where her oldest daughter sits at her feet. She may feel like a zombie but it is well worth the exhaustion, the stress, and everything else that comes to raising an independent loving little girl and bringing another strong baby girl into the world even though the world has become so confused and full of hate. Their mother sighs heavily as she thinks about having to raise these girls in the strange world, her mind and heart heavy. She looks at her daughters and hopes that they grow into beautiful, smart, independent, loving, caring women who won’t let the world or those living in it change their hearts or steer them off their path towards whatever it is that they wish to be when they grow up.

Her eyes wander to the couch beside her where her amazing husband sits, staring down at his laptop that sits propped on his black lap desk, his eyebrows knitted together as his fingers slide across the keyboard, the man never done with his work for the Navy and always giving his all to make sure that everyone is taken care of medically. The enjoyable clicking of the keyboard and the sight of her husband brings a smile to her face because she knows that she is not alone in raising her two daughters. The world may be scary but she knows that with the help of this incredible man beside her, their daughters will stand a chance. And with their families and all of their friends behind them, their daughters will always have the help they may need and will win in this crazy life of theirs.

She returns to her writing, a story flowing forth from her imagination and pen. She continues to write and to work on the story before her eyes, knowing that she must strive to work hard, get published, and show her girls that their dreams can come true if they keep striving for it, work hard, and never give up. Her eyes leave the page that she is writing on a few times as she looks to her sleeping sweet baby, to her older amazing daughter, and her perfect reliable husband, feeling truly blessed and at home with her little family. Her pen flies across the page, her mind whirling with thoughts and ideas, and a smile stays plastered to her face because as she sits there on their couch, she feels like this is their perfect time together. She can’t wait to make more beautiful memories as a new family of four, having already made some amazing memories as husband and wife and as a family of three. Life is an adventure and she knew that she has a great group of people to enjoy it with.

It’s In Her Smile

It’s In Her Smile

Dedicated to our sweet youngest daughter, Cara Lynn Gordon. ❤

Big beautiful brown eyes stare up at me from her bassinet and a giant smile crosses over her face as she stares back into my eyes. Our second miracle baby had graced us with her presence earlier than August 4, 2018. She decided that she had and we had waited long enough and came to be with our happy little family of three on July 23rd at only 38 weeks and 2 days and made us an even happier family of four. She came out kicking and screaming to world that she has arrived and that she has a world to take over, her smile being one aspect that will help her achieve that goal.

Her smile is big and full of love even if she is so little and so young. I can’t get enough of her smile when she looks at me or someone else, especially when she gives that huge beautiful smile to her daddy and her favorite big sister, Kierra, and you can’t help but feel loved by this little person. I feel so blessed to be able to have a second daughter, a second child, and a second rainbow baby after yet another heartbreaking miscarriage. I just hope that I can continue to be a good mother and raise her to be a wonderful loving human being just like her older sister. I fear for her and her older sister because of how totally screwed up this world has become. All of the hate is ruining such a wonderful place and I doubt that it’ll get any better unless the human race wakes up but will that happen? Most likely not in my lifetime or theirs but one can hope that one-day the world will wake up and become more peaceful. But until then I will raise my girls the best that I can with the help of my amazing husband by my side and my wonderful family and friends since they say it takes a village to raise a child or children and I have the best village beside me. And I will continue to get lost in those wide brown eyes and that big beautiful smile as she grows.

Love you to pieces, our little pumpkin, our Cara Lynn. I can’t get enough of your amazing smile and can’t wait to see you grow into who you are meant to be. Well of course I can wait because I wish to enjoy every second of your life, watching you grow up right before my eyes. You are an amazing baby already and just like your big sister, you have such a beautiful smile and great big dazzling eyes. Your personality is already shining through and I know that you are going to be an amazing little girl. And if you ever need help, I am here and so is your daddy. Your big sister will also always have your back. Love you always, pumpkin, never change that smile so that it can always melt our hearts and bring a smile to our face.
