Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

The other night, while giving Aria a bath, I had a couple of little "helpers".

Now, it may look like they're in the way, but they are actually helping, or at least that's what they say.:) Aria didn't seem to mind. I think she kind of liked them tickling her chubby little belly. She graduated from sink baths to tub baths a few weeks ago. I must admit, it was nice and more comfortable giving her a bath in the sink. Our sink wasn't big enough in Lakewood to ever bathe the kids in it, but this one is a nice size. It was much easier on my back to do it in the sink than bending over the tub, but that's okay. She has to grow and she needs to get cleaned. She doesn't seem to mind the baths. She likes to be wrapped up in a towel at the end and loves to smile at you. She is so precious! I love the smell of a freshly bathed baby head!
Side note: baby body shapes are actually quite funny when you look at them. They have all these rolls, no neck really (their heads look like they are just plopped onto their bodies) and big round bellies. It reminds me of the game at Finn's baby shower, which I think Kelli actually won, where everyone had to make a baby out of play-doh. Babies really do look like that. Funny little marshmallow people.


  1. Ha ha ha! Granny got quite the work out last night, dancing around our glass shower doors as I tried to wash hair without causing grief! Cadence was a little disappointed in my lack of bath toys! They are still snoozing this morning after a few wake ups during the night. They went right back to sleep and are all cozy. I'm so crazy about these two little darlings!

  2. I agree, freshly bathed baby smells great. Some of us never stop looking like play-dough people...I know, I'm one of them!
