my tiny (best) friends

"Friends are born, not made."
- Henry Adams


"My father always used to say that when you die,
if you've got five real friends,
you've had a great life."
* Lee Iacocca
I am brought to tears by this photo.
Tears of complete joy.
Happiness.
Pride.
Our babies have grown so much, together.
The mommies have grown so much, together.
But, here's the thing.
I look at this picture...
and I don't see my c0-workers' kids.
I don't even see Molly's friends.
I see MY friends.
My littlest friends.
Oh, babies...you are all so completely loved.
Your giggles, smiles, and tiny friendships
melt my heart.
I love how you are all so different,
but yet completely the same.
Promise me, babies...
That since I can't STOP you from growing,
that I can be there forever to watch you grow with Molly.
And mommies, thank you for sharing your babies with me.
I promise to always have my camera...
because moments like this are priceless.

I agree with Shalimar...Sara thank you so much for always capturing those moments for us they are PRICELESS. You couldn't have said it any better. WE are SO blessed to have all you mommies and babies in our lives. I could hardly make it through your post it makes me so happy and sentimental.
