The Littlest Lady.





There have been several swirling conversations around here of late surrounding busyness.  I certainly feel like life has set me standing on a ball balancing myself and two plates on sticks (and maybe one on my head). I keep trying to remind myself that God has apportioned to us a fixed amount of time and strength in a day and he has not given us less time than what we need to accomplish what He's called us to.

He is sovereign.  & good.  and giving us what we need.
And even when all the plates are breaking....even then, His pleasure rests securely. on me. in Christ.

I think of that because the night we took these pictures, we went to the park on a whim with dishes and dinner in a huge mess at home.  The kids were kids....walking on the blanket, eating sticks, swinging joyfully next to the camera.

And, in the midst of that, came a few little pics of June-June at 15 months, hanging out on my old baby blanket, made (i'm pretty sure....mom?) by my grandmother's mother.  Sucking her thumb.  Laughing wildly just at the little thrill of touching her pointer finger to her dad's.  Crawling in the mulch.

Yep, she's still a crawler.  Apparently, we don't make early walkers.  That's three for three.

  3. Campbell has several curls on her crown and I think they are going to stay! I hope they do atleast. I was thinking on the whole balance thing...it has been on my mind a lot because I also feel like the image you described above. I am not sure there really is that balance we seek. I think maybe it is more discernment...meaning knowing when to stop one thing to do another. Still working all that out in my head.

  4. She's so cute. All your babies have their own little look. Its so sweet.

    I feel you on the busyness, I have to remind myself daily that we can stop, breathe, etc. It will all get done in due time.
