simple days

Some days I relish the rhythms of these simple times.  I wake up each morning to the coos and giggles of my little girl.  After she has breakfast I put her on her blanket to kick and play and we laugh together, exchanging morning grins while I sip on a coffee.  I love the simple pleasures of having a child.  Making lunch with a girl sitting at my heels.  Putting in another load of laundry while I hear squawks from her exersaucer upstairs.  Watching Zoey sit on my bed while I put on makeup in the bathroom.  Working on small projects while she naps.  Some days it feels like I don't get much done but it's the small tasks of living together that make life so full and wonderful.  Some days I imagine a house full of children: laughter, fits, and fighting.  The works.  Some days that seems overwhelming.  But these days are good.  They are good.  They are good.

I love my "simple days" with my boy too. Such a happy beautiful time. I wish I had more hours in the day to spend with him. Keep on enjoying life. We are blessed!

I just came across your blog and love it! Your baby is darling!
I love those simple days. It seems that as my son gets older the days become more hectic. Soak it up while it lasts!
