In true Christina fashion, I entered a photo in the I Heart Faces challenge that is actually not legitimate for me to enter. I got so wrapped up in looking for pictures that had to do with hands, and told a good story, that I forgot that I am supposed to have taken the picture. While I will say that I got through Eliana's birth fairly easily, I am not so tricky that I was able to take a picture of Mike, Eliana, and myself just after she was born.
I went back to my choices and decided (and it was hard, I might do a post on the other pictures as well...they are all sweet) on this one...
Not only could Mike and I not wait to get our hands on Eliana, her big sister couldn't wait either! She wanted to hold her all the time from the moment she saw her, and still loves to spend time with her little sister. I also chose this picture because not only has Michaela loved to hold Eliana, but she has also been so very hands on with her. She is always willing to spend time with Eliana, and loves to play with and care for her. Michaela is a tenderhearted, loving girl, and she adores Eliana. I'm so glad that they will have each other for life.
There are so many lovely pictures people have shared at I Heart Faces...check it out.
