I usually keep my baby spam to the confines of my own laptop, but since I’m trying to get back into the habit of regular blogging I figured hey, why not spam everyone?! So here we are. Lilah’s wearing a few of my all time favorite baby-girl items; her Woolly Wonder Knits bonnet that just started to fit her a few weeks back, her pink pair of Poudre Organic bloomers via Mama Owl, her basic white Gerber top (I love the classic Gerber wear!), and then there’s her blue Summer Poppy swaddle by Little Unicorn. I’ve bought very, very little for her, but when I do buy I make sure to invest in timeless items that I love. We’re not exactly planning on expanding our family any further, but….she may need a little sister to pass these things down to someday! Just saying.
These pictures were taken right about the time she was three and a half months old, which was coincidentally the same time she realized she could stick out and wiggle her tongue (reference photo #1, haha!). And honestly, whether she’s wearing pretty little things or a hand-me-downs from her brothers, I’m just so thankful for every little second I have with her. The longer I’ve been a mom, the more I’ve learned to slow down as much as possible and appreciate every little thing about each child. I never feel like I do that successfully- almost every night I put them to bed somewhat regretful (grateful for bedtime, yes), but worried that we didn’t glean as much quality time together as we could have. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to avoid that feeling….life is busy, it moves fast, and it’s hard to split myself between all four every day and be relaxed enough to take it all in to it’s fullest. But each and every day is a gift from God, and for every time that I’m tempted to worry about how fast the time goes or to regret what’s already passed, I remind myself of all we have in Christ. I remind myself of the joy of knowing Him, of the fullness He’s given to our family and the good, beautiful things He has in store. There is so much to wake up and be thankful for every single day, and so much to look forward to in the light of His promises!
