10 things i ((love)) sunday

"soak it up, dear," they say, "i remember those days and they go by all too fast." i am a shameless swooner of all things baby and kid--cheeks aching from smiles and giggles, the passerby's kiss as they rush on to the next big adventure in the backyard, the first "daddy, let's play barbie's," shy smiles attempting to hide the excitement of a 'this is cool' moment , tight hugs, tiny fingers. i want to capture all the wisps of the moments i know are fleeting.

ava is 4. just yesterday she was a little babe in my arms. i cared for all her needs and then, well, she grew. just like she is supposed to, just like i want her to. but, WOW, this time is passing all so quickly. did you know that "someday {she} is going to get married and have 3 kids and move away but, {i} can visit."

here is an interview with a 4 year old!



a few more:
favorite food: macaroni and cheese...who could have guessed!
favorite candy: hot chocolate with whipped cream and a marshmallow
worst food to eat: lettuce
favorite place to go: daddy's work
animal that gives you the jitters: a bear. i think we need to go on another bear hunt. i love this song and your kids will too.

there are moments when it seems as if there is just too much on our plates. i love dropping it all to have it all! i love our afternoon vacations, our pruning sessions in the bubble bath, our purposeful {and at times not so purposeful} chaos, your wild and carefree dancing. you are amazing!

it's one thing to find yourself, to know yourself, to love yourself and dwell in a world that can seem to skew your perceptions with expectations to be smarter, prettier, richer, funnier, faster, better, different from any marvelous thing you already are.

you are amazing!
