Blue Eyes

I am often stunned at the gorgeous shade of blue that Julia and Emma have for their eyes. Everyone always comments on Emma's eyes as she uses them so expressively that you can't help but notice them. What people sometimes don't notice is that Julia has the same shade of blue eyes. When she was little people would stop us on the street to comment on Julia's blue eyes, but now that she is a toddler and rarely sitting still it's hard to notice them as they go by in a whirlwind of toddlerhood!

I took a photo of Julia on Christmas Eve as we were leaving the house for Church. She was sitting still since she was buckled in her car seat and looked at me when I called her name just in time for me to snap her photo. Although there was a lot of background in this picture, when I saw it I could only focus on her gorgeous eyes. I love this photo and I wanted to add it to this journal so I would remember it later.

I love you, my little blue eyed Julia.
