Two Months Old

My heart gets overwhelmed and feels so full every time I think of the tangible evidence of God's goodness in my life named Addie.
Having six children, I have often been asked by mamas expecting their second child if the love for another child will be as strong as it was for the firstborn. I remember being concerned when I was expecting our second, wondering how in the great green world I would be able to love another child as much as I love Annaliese. Thankfully, God has given the heart an endless capacity for love. As I grow older, I think I've become more aware of how fleeting these years with our children are and savor them more fully and wondrously.

She's lovely and growing so fast!

I totally agree with you...it gets easier for me to enjoy my children the older I get.

I'd have more right now if that was possible. :-)

I can't believe your precious baby is already two months old. She is so sweet. I was giggling at the other posts because my nine year old boy has made his sisters bow and arrows. I love how they are so creative. Love love love your blog.
