I am in Kentucky all this week and it is glorious. I never get tired of coming home, and this week I have gotten to spend some quality time with two of my favorite girls, Amanda and Emmie Rose. By this I mean trying to pretend like that precious redheaded baby belongs to me and being a little stingy with stroller pushing privileges.
It is bittersweet spending time with Amanda this week because the Worthams are moving to Alabama next week and will be sorely missed. True, I don’t live here most of the year… but I selfishly want everyone in one spot for when I come visit. I get a lump in my throat just thinking about coming to visit Kentucky and not spending time with Amanda. I hate thinking that there won’t be as many occasions for poetry, walks, and sun salutations, book discussions where we yank our hair really hard to emphasize our feelings and afternoons at the pool. Sometimes I wonder how we have crammed so much friendship into only three years.
We squeezed in a quick photo shoot one afternoon this week to get a couple pictures of the whole family before they move, and because I know you were just dying to see how much Emmie has grown since Christmas. Here are just a couple shots. And yes, we did change her clothes three times in 30 minutes. What good is having a daughter if you can’t play dress-up?Wortham family, you will be very missed, because you are so very loved.
