Oh sweet girl. I could eat you up.
The hubs and I are both from St. Louis. We'd known each other for the better part of a decade, but we didn't decide to start dating and fall in love until he was days away from moving to Dallas. Life has a funny way of working out and a year later I was moving down myself... the rest is history.
Because our relationship started and blossomed while he was in a new city, I've only gotten to really know his friends (and vice versa) in bits and pieces when they come to visit, which, as it turns out, is a pretty great way to get to know people. The one-on-one time makes the visits really count. And it gives me time to obsessively paparazzi their poor children.
Charleigh Jean has come to visit us three times now in her almost two years of life, and it's been so fun to watch her grow and become this sassy little adventurer with the most expressive face I've ever seen.
I can't wait until they can make it down again, so she can teach Paxton to be just as awesome as she is.
