And her nursery is finally “finished.”

Except not really because two days ago, she knocked a frame off the wall while I was changing her diaper and it broke. So there’s that. (beautiful wallpaper from here)

 But I love where it has come and watching our house become a home where our kids want to stay all day and get more excited than anything else when we have nothing to do but stay home all day.

 I love the mirror that was my grandmother’s over the mantle.

And I love that each grandmother and great-grandmother is pictured in her room (especially her namesakes).
Little Miss hasn't even made it to her room but she has met both of her namesakes. Especially #thankful for family and being home and almost settled this special time of year.
I love that she loves to play here and I love these little houses her grandmother picked up for her.

I love that my mom saved the dress I came home from the hospital in so that she, too, could wear it home.

I love that we pray over her here and thank God for each day we are able to spend with her. I love that this song over her bed was what spoke to me most clearly when we took the leap of faith, resigned from my teaching job, then found out we were expecting a little girl.
What really happens when I try to snap pictures! Good night, friends! #simplybeautifulliving #simplestylehome

I love the joy she adds to our family and the happiness she brings her daddy and her brothers.

Even though, the oldest caught the stomach bug from the middle one and we are missing a trip to the zoo and our basketball breakfast, I can't help but be so thankful for this fun, but tough, age. Can they just be 2 and 4 (and 8 weeks) forever?

 

He was the one I was most worried about with her. I thought he would be indifferent, and sometimes he is. But sometimes, I'll turn around and see this or see him walk by and whisper, "I love you, Callie."

I love how surprised I am daily by how much I absolutely adore her.

 

 

“Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thess. 2:8 Some thoughts on 32 #ontheblog today and what it means to jump off the island...
“Because we loved you so much,
we were delighted to share with you
not only the gospel of God
but our lives as well.” 1 Thess. 2:8
Because this reminder, every single day, of how much I love my kiddos hints ever so slightly from our Father, this is not even close to how much I love you.
