This week, I had the great privaledge of keeping my 14 month old neice, Bennett. She was such a joy to have around. She slept in between Richard and I every night (sorry Michelle) and we had great play time during the day. My house is a little sad now without her. The time with her brought me such joy, that is makes me even more excited to have a little one around again. Here are some pictures...I just captured a few because she is very mobile now!
Isn't she a doll! She will actually say "CHEESE" when she sees a camera pointed at her.
This is her sleepy face. That pacifer goes wherever she goes too.
Playing with "Pu Do" aka Play Dough is one her favorite things to do. She only snuck in a few nibbles of the dough...
This is Bennett running a way from me. She says "go go go" when she is trying to hurry away. Most of the week I was chasing her around. I loved every minute of it!
And now...for the most special surprise. Michelle had her good friend, Krista, make us the most beautiful painting for our bedroom. It is of a beautiful daylily. It has the words "hope, longing, and life" from Proverbs 13. My sister found this verse and I think it is a perfect fit for Richard and I. It captures what we have felt in this year of grief, but also the hope that comes from the life we are expecting. Thank you so much for this special gift, Michelle and Beau, we will treasure it forever!
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. "
