exhibit a: today, Lord, i am thankful that lil miss prefers Bible stories over all others, reminds us to pray at meals and always wants to listen to "JESUS!!" in the car (little kids' Bible songs cds). i love that she says, "i love Jesus. you love Jesus, mommy? sweet pea loves Jesus. daddy loves Jesus. turner loves Jesus. etc... etc..." i know she doesn't really get it yet, but i am so glad that she already has good taste!

june 5-11, 2010

i think i just might have to, for sanity's sake and maybe just for temporary purposes, set a goal to write a post here once weekly...
but now that i sit down to recap and look back on this week, i think that maybe it would be better to just do it daily after all.
ah well, here it goes:
exhibit a: this week, Lord, i am thankful for the breath of my babies asleep on my chest. their peaceful rhythmic inhales and exhales. secure. safe. content. heavy to hold and limp in slumber. sweaty curls. blankies and dollies. sweetness. thank you for letting me experience this lovely little corner of mommyhood.

exhibit a: today, Lord, i am thankful for a growing, healthy and filled-out baby! i know it really means nothing in the scheme of things, but it is nice to know that sweet pea falls exactly in the 50% for weight and even higher for height and head circumference! seeing those numbers made my mommy's heart smile! i know that her growth had and has everything to do with You, so thank you for the encouraging appointment today and for Your steady hand that has formed her.

exhibit a: today, Lord, i am thankful that lil miss has learned to pretend that she is sleeping. i like that game! thank you more importantly for tugging at her heart strings and for making her more and more apologetic and regretful of the wrongs she does.
exhibit b: classic sweet pea move...it is cute in this photo, but annoying when she does this same back bend when she is done nursing oh about two minutes after she starts...
