I just had to post this cute picture of Brooklyn... I can't believe how big she is getting! I love this little gal and how much happiness she brings into our family.  Matt and I feel truly blessed she chose to come to our family... There is some significance as to why I posted this picture. I had a dream when I was pregnant, before Matt and I knew whether we were having a girl or a boy. In the dream was a young girl and I was playing and running around with this young girl... this picture looks so much like the little girl I saw in my dream. I knew in the back of mind that the girl in my dream was going to be my little girl someday... I like to think that before I was born I was playing and interacting with the girl that would someday be my little girl and the dream was but a small remembrance of life before we came to earth. As I think about this I am reminded of the hymn song, O My Father, and this particular line sticks out to me: 

For a wise and glorious purpose thou hast placed me here on earth and withheld the recollection of my former friends and birth. Yet ofttimes a secret something whispered, "You're a stranger here," and I felt that I had wandered from a more exalted sphere.

I love you sweet Brooklyn....
