If it were up to us...

I'm going to act like it hasn't been 8 months since I've blogged.

Yesterday was a lovely, slow, drizzly Sunday afternoon. Naomi toddled around, giggled, babbled and asked us to read books to her. One of those days where we couldn't tell her no for anything. That evening, after telling her it was time for bed and she gladly headed to the stairs, my husband and I followed, watching the little diaper-clad butt trundle up ahead of us. Jim turned to me and said,

"I've caught up to you."
"What do you mean?"
"You've always said that you wish time would stop. That you wish she would stay just the way she is right now. And you've been saying it since she was tiny. Well...I've reached that point. I don't want her to get any bigger. I want time to stop right now."

So glad to finally see a blog again! Love it!! How did my macho son become so sensitive? Baby girls will do that do you.

Love does amazing things to us. Just when you think your love cannot grow any more - God blesses us with greater capacity! He blessed us with a wonderful daughter and son! We loved them. He blessed us with another son and daughter (in-law)! We loved them. He blessed us with a grandson - another grandson - a granddaughter! We love them....more and more. And we stand in awe of what the Lord has done.
