Family Ties

Well, we're off to Vidalia for the weekend. We had planned this trip in advance, but now I'm glad we're going to be well out of the way of Gustav should he decide to come this way. Our house is all boarded up and I'm loading up the car. But our trip up there has me thinking about family and how change is inevitable whether is positive or negative. And sometimes even though it may seem negative at the time, everything turns out better in the end. I've also been thinking about the little family that Josh and I are creating together. We made Lily with half of my genes and half of his, but somehow, I have yet to see any of Josh in her. I'm sure it'll come out sooner or later. I'm sure she'll have his devilish sense of humor or his kind and generous nature. Check out these pictures though and see which one of us she resembles the most. (top to bottom: Me, Josh, Lily). Now that I look at all of the pictures together, I don't know anymore. Maybe she is OURS and not just mine. Or maybe Josh and I just looked very much alike as babies. Who knows. Anyway, I hope everyone stays safe and good luck weathering out this storm!

Hey.....I love you. :)

It's hard to say who she resembles most. She definitely favors you, but she kinda looks like Josh's baby pic too. So, she's both of yours. At least you can definitely see yourself in Lily. All I see is Daniel when I look at Jezebel. I know half of me is in there somewhere. :)

So, how did you fare with the storm and a month old baby? Is your house still standing? If so, do you have electricity? I sure hope so.

I can't wait to see you in about 2 1/2 months. :)

love and hugs,
