eight (nine) months

the little girl who always has a twinkle in her eye
crawling, standing and moving to and from
becoming quite a "daddy's girl"  
her feisty spirit (and will) is starting to show - oh, dear!
adores swimming class, all things social, peekaboo barn, sparkles, ribbons and buttons

the sweetest little boy
always checking in during playtime for a hug or snuggle
took his first step and greeted two new bottom teeth - hooray!
loves to climb, flip through (or rip pages out of) books and explore mommy's office

this life with p&p is a wild adventure
we wouldn't have it any other way

happy eight/nine months, loves!

"How nice to be surprised by subtlety. To stumble across genuine beauty, true sincerity without overt attempts to impress. Understated elegance that leaves room to imagine, to think, to decide for ourselves, to appreciate. Films and other art forms that give us spaces of silence to feel, to sigh. Speeches, sermons, and writing that reflect true craftsmanship, convincing us that so much more was meant to be said.

My plea in a nutshell? More originals, fewer copies. More creativity, less technology. More implying, less explaining. More thought, less talk. Someone put it like this:
'To state with restraint . . . for greater effect.' That's what understatement means. As in 'I love you.'
 Next time you're tempted to say too much, just say that."

"let the dew of my presence refresh your mind and heart. so many, many things vie for your attention in this complex world of instant communication. the world has changed enormously since I first gave the command to be still, and know that I am God. however, this timeless truth is essential for the well-being of your soul. as dew refreshes grass and flowers during the stillness of the night, so My Presence revitalizes you as you sit quietly with Me.

a refreshed, revitalized mind is able to sort out what is important and what is not. in its natural condition, your mind easily gets stuck on trivial matters. like the spinning wheels of a car trapped in mud, the cogs of your brain spin impotently when you focus on a trivial thing. as soon as you start communicating with Me about the matter, your thoughts gain traction and you can move on to more important things. communicate with Me continually, and I will put My thoughts in your mind."

seven months

fond of all things that glitter 
loves to play with her nursery friends - particularly mister rabbit (puppet)
is known to throw her head back and flash a big, dramatic smile

downward dogs, side planks (oh, yes)
this one is off in the blink of an eye - explorer extraordinaire
daddy (and the puppies) win the biggest giggles

happy seven months, loves!

six months

the girl who rises with a smile
a mild-mannered, charming little one
loves to engage with others and fascinated by fabrics, colors and textures
did i mention she has her first two teeth?

the boy who is cheerful, busy and everything in between
spirited and fun, we cannot get enough of his sweet little giggles
master of army crawling and exploring every new thing
loves when we sing and play airplane

happy six months, loves!
