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.

Like Mother Like Daughter

I dug this "April" doll out of one of my many childhood boxes we have stored in the garage. My Aunt Judy made this for me and I thought Cadence would enjoy playing with her. At first, she named her "Shoes", as in ballet shoes. Then, she renamed her "Judy" since I told her that my Aunt Judy made her for me.

She has this cute summery romper on, but I had put my preschool shirt on her. As I was taking this picture of my shirt, I noticed that the picture studio was the same company that took Cadence's preschool pictures this past year, Teddy Bear Portraits. Crazy! Cadence, of course, did not want to keep my shirt on "Judy". Oh well.:)
I used to put a brown wig on her and play hair salon (since her hair is yarn, I couldn't style it, which is why I put the wig on her). When I got older, she used to sit in my desk chair. I would move her when I sat to do my homework and then promptly return her to her seat when I was finished.
Finn has been fascinated by teeth lately. He's been talking about his own, asking to see mine, and pointing them out on various toys. I don't know why. Maybe it is because he has such a mouthful. Look at that cutie! What a handsome lad.

  1. A handsome lad indeed! And what a BITE, I accidentally got in the way of those incisors once but NEVER AGAIN! I love the way you watch and care for our children. I celebrate in the way you lovingly observe their interests, patterns and habits. I love YOU. You are the most wonderful wife ever.
