I sat back and watched. Miscellaneous pictures of the kids appeared on the screen along with some mushy songs. I didn't want it to end. It was 3 or 4 songs worth of photographs. Most were of Luke and Ella from our California days. And towards the end baby Olivia come on. It was overwhelming to watch these 3 kids who I love more than anything. To see the things we did together, interactions with each other, places we'd go. It was a record of our life. It showcased those whom I love most. My Family.
I couldn't help but to think of this baby girl who will be joining in in all tomorrow. I imagined what this same video would be in a couple of years. Filled with new pictures of a Sister and a Daughter that we've yet to meet. Pictures of Olivia and she... splashing in the pool. Pictures of Luke and She, cheesy grins and skinny arms wrapped around each other.
Today at breakfast I said "Well, here's to our last day as a family of 5." And I was thinking about all of the chaos and craziness that's about to hit us all. My Mom jumped in and said, "this is your last day as an incomplete family. Tomorrow you will be complete." I loved that. I cant wait for it.
To a complete Family. 1 Dad. 1 Mom. 1 Son and 3 Daughters. The Wirthlins. Finally all together. (I hope....)
