Arms Full.

At 10 weeks old, she’s hit 10 lbs of cuddly rolls, squishy cheeks {I believe she is our chunkiest baby yet!} and super sweet smiles … oh, Lavender, you truly are such a beautiful addition to my life! There is nothing sweeter than sitting on the front porch in peak of summer, rocking a precious baby in your arms … {grateful, ever so grateful that the Lord brought another baby into our home… I do not take this for granted}… she does, however, have other days of being in my arms while we chase the ducks back into their pens, scare away turkey vultures that seem to threaten our flock, prepare dinner together, clean the house with her in my arms and even sleep all night in my arms.

My arms are full, yes, and I am glad of that.


For Stacy, who asked for an awake photo of our newest daughter. xxo

{I personally think she looks like a mini Abby …!}
