7 Days until 3 Years

Julia, 9 Months, Aug 2011

Today marks seven days until Julia's third birthday. This week I will share some of the little things that make up the everyday memories of our time together. Here is the first memory about Julia that I would like to share. Julia was very sensitive to sunlight. Every time I walked outside with her and the sun was shining brightly, she would sneeze five times in a row. Then we both would smile. Did she smile because sneezing was funny? Because the warm, bright sun felt good? Because I would laugh when she sneezed? The reason was not too important. When she smiled, I knew all I needed to know -- that in that moment, all was okay in our world.

Julia is just sooooo beautiful! I love her smile! The sun sneezing made me smile. It reminded me of Lilly - she did the same thing! But I never counted her sneezing. :)
