Making Up for Lost Time

Moments like this melt my heart. Josh and I kept talking for several weeks after the move that it is just so good to see the girls with our family and how excited we were to get to do this more often. We're excited to get to give them the gift of family (and also to our families the gift of us being closer). Several people mentioned over Christmas that Brooklynn had really "come out of her shell". Brooklynn is REALLY shy. Even around family she is just not the same Brooklynn she is at home. Whenever we made the drive to visit, she would take a day or two to warm up to everybody, (and also recover from the long drive and lack of sleep, etc.) and then we would have to leave. Now she was already warmed up and we could just enjoy everything. It was wonderful.
