"Second star to the right.."

IMG_2141 

A piece of me always returns to a safe and happy place of imagination, awe, and wonder, through the eyes and experiences of my children.

I like to think we all have a little Lost Boy in us.


"Second star to the right, and straight on till morning."

In my shoes.

IMG_2227_2

There is something simultaneously heart melting and terrifying seeing your daughter walking around in your shoes.

My thought process goes something like this:

"She wants to be just like me!"  *heart melt*

And then...

"She wants to be just like me!"  *gulp* *deep breath*


Here we go.

God, 

Give me grace.

Amen.

Asa: 11 months

IMG_2228

This boy. I don't feel like I can even put into words how much this one has stolen my heart. His sweetness has been such a balm to my soul in this season. And man, oh man, is he sweet! He is my snuggler for sure and I am always happy to oblige. As I recall, with Adoration, by this time she wouldn't really fall asleep on me anymore, if she did, it was rare. But Asa is still happy to snuggle in and fall asleep on me and James. This time around, I have no desire to sacrifice his babyness for the sake of schedules, or sleep training, or whatever. He can be his baby self and I will be his mama and we will snuggle as much as we please. 


Asa Trust,

My little king. You are the prince of my heart. May your sweetness always stay with you, even as you are climbing over every obstacle and conquering every foe. May you ever grow in kindness, compassion, tenderness, strength, valor, and integrity. You are my son. And in you I am well pleased. 

Love,
Your Mama
