Pennsylvania was blessed with a very mild winter this year, followed by an early Spring. We have been loving all this warm, sunny weather! Everything feels so new and refreshing.
I must be getting very nostalgic now that my third baby is here. Perhaps it's because I know just how quickly time passes once you have children, and just how quickly those children grow up. As the weather warmed up, I began to savor all the precious moments. I am captivated by the carefree innocence of my children, and am trying to absorb all these memories.
We spent a lovely day with Grant's family yesterday afternoon. I stepped back and quietly captured all the sweet moments. These moments are the ones I will hold onto forever.
Skinny legs with scraped up knees, shoved into over-sized rain boots.
Sundresses and polka dot rain boots. The cutest, quirkiest combination.
The endless searches for frogs.
A smile that lights up a room.
Siblings that may fight at times, but are the best of friends.
Sweet smiles tossed my way in the midst of playtime.
A tutu-ed sleeping baby.
The sweet moments when she first wakes up.
Ice cream on the deck, while discussing their favorite animals.
The happiness on my father-in-law's face as he held his newest granddaughter for the first time.
The sweetness of a little girl.
Exploring the great outdoors.
Discovering and learning.
Days so full and enjoyable that sleep comes quickly.
Vibrant flowers sprouting from the once frozen ground.
Old and new.
Life is beautiful.
