little messes

When I've finally got Livi fed, burped, and napping I love to look around the house at the mess we've made.

There are always blankets strewn everywhere


pacifiers, burp cloths, and bottle tops on end tables


her cute stuffed pig from grammy


and a little teeny sock in the middle of the kitchen.

She loves nothing more than to kick those socks off.

I love these little messes. I think back to the time when these messes weren't there, and it makes me grateful that they are there now. I am so thankful to finally have her here in our family.

then she'll turn two and you'll find a pile of dirt in the bathtub, a bottle of nailpolish emptied onto the kitchen counters, and her entire dresser of clothes emptied onto her bedroom floor.

and you'll still love her and those messes.

I loved seeing baby things around the house and washing baby clothes and anything that reminded me how much gratitude and joy I feel at having a sweet new spirit in our home! There is nothing like the look, feel, and smell of a new baby!
