all below are thoughts from Joslin on a random normal Saturday. the beauty of the brain of a two year old who loves life.
in a growing dramatic voice, that ended in a adorable angry playful voice that showed her humor: I’m going to tell them all we ARE going to have a picnic and I’M GOING TO EAT IT ALLLL!! (who is them? and well how rude ha)
running in the kitchen holding my silk peonies flower: look mommie a bee cave!!!
after FINALLY getting a shower this week and actually makeup on when i walk in the den: I’m pretty like you mommie
as she picks up her macaroni shell at dinner: *gasp* i can hear the ocean!
she awakens crying: daddie, there is a song in my head, it’s scary. (yes, we both died, so after some loving we decided to sing Jesus Loves me and kick whatever stupid song had her heart pounding, and all is well. THAT is Jesus!)
playing in her pool she bends over to get her hair wet: look everybody i’m a octapus!
man, that girl has my heart. this journey of motherhood started with her and then went to a whole other beauty with Madeline Rose. The Lord is good, the Lord has blessed me. I can’t admire her without seeing Jesus’ heart in making that mind that works so fast sometimes she sighs and pouts “I just can’t say it mommie” or those hands that LOVES to pick blackberries in our woods or throw rocks in the creek. He saw those moments and decided to give them to us! Joslin will always be our first and everything that means & Madeline Rose with always be my baby and everything that means. I fall in love with my two girls everyday but today was even harder because I feel in love with the details, the kind that you have to STOP and listen for, whether relationships, nature, your job, or life stop and look for the details and love just a little more. See Jesus in that beauty.
