Belle is a completely different story. She's a big baby with rolls and dimples that make grown men squeak at the cuteness. Her eyes are a dark, ocean blue, piercing and almond shaped. Her left cheek has a little dimple that I hope stays forever and her hair is brown without any sign of my curls.
Every night for as long as I've fallen asleep next to my husband, I've reached out a foot to rest upon his leg, just to feel that he's there as I fall asleep... It's not because my feet are cold or I'm begging for a foot massage (or something more, ahem). I just stretch my foot onto the other side of the bed to unobtrusively touch some part of him as I drift off into my dreams.
And my daughter does this... to me!
Oh yeah, and BOTH MY GIRLS do the same nose scrunchy thing that my little sis and I do which just melts my heart...
For the record, I think Emma looks a lot like her father and his mother and Belle has my father in-law's ears for sure and I think I see my Grandmother's button nose there too.
But, honestly, when I look at them now? After taking in all that they are right this very minute, on this day in their little lives, all I can see, is me.
