Baby graces

Mary is happily pulling her board books off the second shelf and dumping them on the floor, so I grab my phone and check Instagram. I look up a moment later and find that she has crawled over to my chair. She’s pulled herself up so she can peek over the edge at me. She holds out a block with one hand, offering. Her eyes are big and round, her eyebrows raised. I take the block and smile, “Thank you!” She smiles back, proud to have caught my attention. I set my phone aside, out of her reach, and join her on the floor. We pass blocks back and forth. She piles them in my cupped hands until they overflow.

  1. Dear Laura
    I remember this wonderful time with my two sons as well when they were babies. So incredibly precious. Now they are young men and I miss those times.
    Blessings from Heather’s.

    • Thanks Mia. I know it’s a privilege to have this time with my daughter. I try to remember that when she’s being… less than adorable 🙂

  2. hands overflow, indeed.
    And mine tend to overflow more often when I do set that phone down, despite the awesomeness of instagram! 🙂

    Beautiful snapshot.

  3. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.

    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
