I'm in love...

Seriously I am totally in love with my kids right now. For some reason I am more aware than ever how fast they are growing and how someday they won't be so little. Since my last post was all about C, this post is all about Eden.
This is my girl.

She is awesome!

She loves fashion and still calls her outfits "elefits". She names her "elefits"...this one is called "black girl".

Eden is full of life. She is a ray of sunshine.

I love how she writes her name.
Ever since Maya started writing in cursive, Eden has worked very hard to perfect her name in cursive.

She loves music, dancing and performing.

She loves her baby brother. I'm pretty sure that her faith and her prayers alone would have brought Camden to us.
This is a paper Eden did at school. It is about Camden. This is what she wrote..."He plays with me. I love him. He is ceute. His skin is like chocolate.

She is the sweetest, kindest, funniest, most generous kid you will ever meet.

She tends to tattle and is always concerned with fairness. She is a bit put out that Camden prefers Maya over her.

She is quite sensitive and is very aware of those around her. At school her teacher's only concern is that Eden is too busy helping others that she doesn't get her own work done.

She loves Maya and wants so badly to always have her approval.  Unfortunately, Maya isn't the best at appreciating her sister's admiration.

I was the second child, I was the little sister. I know how it feels to be the tag along and not always wanted. I know how it feels to be looked over and not listened too. I like to think that because I am sensitive about it, I can help her. But sometimes there is just nothing you can do about being the middle child. I think Eden handles it better than I ever did.
Having Eden as my daughter is a dream come true.
SERIOUSLY! I love my girl.
Oh and just for fun my friend Lindsay is doing a give away go here to check it out!

I totally relate to that little sister thing too. It really gets me going when the older kids tease the little one because that was me and I didn't like it then and I don't like watching it happen now!

Eden is a sweetheart!

She is so cute. But she is so serious when she is in the classroom--I've been going in during the afternoons when I am there to help out in her class. It's during their writing time. One time they were writing about their favorite things. She wrote that her favorite thing was her house. I was trying to help her write down details for her paper. I asked, "What is your favorite thing about your house?" She said, "It makes me feel safe."

Jane's all about the cursive name writing as well.

Those are all such beautiful pictures of her. Glad we get to hang out with her in real life!

I love that first picture of her!

The way she writes her name really is awesome- she has a lot of personality!

I also love when we get those moments of absolute love for our kids! Precious. :)

I love the name Eden. She fits her name to a "T".

Love that black and white comforter. Do tell where you got it.

She is such a beautiful little girl, Jessica.

I love the cursive writing. I also love what you said about her faith and prayers alone would have brought Camden to your home.

That picture of her with the white bow looks like it belongs in a magazine!
