Melissa.... You are such a great mother! I can tell there is no other place she'd rather be then there on your lap! Love you Michaela!

This is a beautiful picture -- what a touching mother & daughter moment! One of my very favorite things to do with Grace is to look at books together. This picture captures a special moment you shared with your daughter. Michaela is a lucky little girl to have such a wonderful Mommy. Love, Rebecca

Dear Melissa,

I love this picture of you two girls. I love reading, too! Books bring a special joy to our lives. As Dr. Seuss says:
The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.
--Emilie Buchwald

How lucky you are, Michaela! I love you very much, Aunt Mary Ann

What a gorgeous photo. I love the quote and I think I love you Melissa, just as much as Natalie loves Michaela. =)

P.S. Maybe we can work on Madelin and Ben about twenty years from now and then we really could be family! =)

Thanks for the comment, Joy. I love you too =) I think we are an older version of Michaela and Natalie, but just think of how lucky they are to have known each other since pre-school!!!! Way cool. Also, Ben and Madelin could so work. Being family would be great, because you aren't getting rid of us....EVER!

Sounds good to me! Maybe we can work on being neighbors so that the girls can go to school together. We can harass them for blog photos at prom and graduation. I can just see Michaela looking for the most comfortable yet beautiful dress and Natalie looking for a dress that matches the SHOES she decided on. =)
