A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

Ryan and I didn’t need to go to Disneyland to remind us of the million magical moments since we got Samarah.

And yet, going to Disneyland with our little yesterday and seeing all the magic through a child’s eyes – even through her baby 8 1/2 month old eyes – took me back to the place where….

We are still not showing her face, but if you could have seen the way her face lit up with all the noise, lights, people and activity, you’d know what I’m talking about. p.s. She was also a total scene steeler constantly. The ooohs and the ahhhhs over this little legume are a sure sign that her daddy will have his work cut out for him someday:)

Seeing Disneyland through a child’s eyes is pure innocence, and when we were paused in those moments, all I could think about was the correlation between her excitement with life and surroundings and the joy she brings to Ryan and I just by watching that excitement. Like her mama, I think she’s always going to have a deep passion for life, and at just 8 1/2 months, I think it’s one of my deepest connections with her.

Ryan is the daddy with an unparalleled positive attitude, and I am the mama who is a child at heart – who believes in inspiration, hopes, dreams, wishes and of course, magical moments.

I believe that our faith in God’s greater plan mixed with all of those things above led us to Samarah, led us to this brand new thrilling, passionate, love-filled and magical life (oh, and super exhausting by the way, too:) ).

We ended our day at Disneyland with the fireworks. I snapped several pictures, while holding Sam’s hand (which she was chewing on simultaneously – ah, teething).

I remembered something I had seen earlier in the day. It’s Walt with Mickey.

And beneath them, Walt Disney calls us “partners,”

And that I love.

But in due time, Ryan, Samarah and I will simply call ourselves –

Forever Family.

And this was a dream our hearts made.

    Just wait Sarah, it gets even better. One of my greatest memories is taking my kids to Disneyland when Marley was five and after she met Tigger she started skipping down the street blowing kisses she was so happy. To see the magic of Disney through your child’s eyes is magical indeed.

    Love your guts my friend!

    Doesn’t the love and excitement in their eyes just want to make your heart explode with love?
    Sigh… mine’s 19 and I really miss those moments (they become “too cool” to let huge excitement show through). LOL… Nikka thinks I’m slightly nuts ’cause I always show excitement. HEY… life is too short is what I tell her. :)
    Love your special moments with Sam and take lots of pictures.
    What a beautiful family you make.

    So Maci and I sing ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ together nearly every night before she goes to bed. My favorite part of that song is the verse “…Skies are blue. And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” It makes me think of many things, mostly how I hope that she follows her dreams in life…whatever they may be…but last night I thought of you. So happy for you that all of your dreams are coming true. Xo
