Heart Filled

I sat on the porch today with Grace in the moby wrap all nestled in under my chin, as we soaked up the most beautiful spring day, and watched the older kids play in the yard.  John, who I shall always refer to as “The Gardner” from now on, sat on the porch and pulled weeds from the front flower beds.  My heart was full to the brim today.

My little girl brought me a weed flower, which she thought smelled fabulous.

My boy went on a bug hunt, see him in the back there searching.  Thank goodness he didn’t find any, Mommy isn’t the biggest fan of bugs 🙂

My other boy tried desperately to climb the same tree he always does, and always fails at.  That doesn’t deter him from trying again each day though.  My girl found her brother’s bug box, and decided it made a wonderful purse 🙂 To which she tried to make a swift get-a-way with “Andy’s purse.”

(looks like she’s lecturing me with that finger doesn’t it)
Baby girl went to the doctor to find out that she’s absolutely perfect, and gaining weight like she’s training to be a cage fighter.

And impressive wooden towers built.

A country baby hanging out in the kitchen while Momma made pork chops (my first big cooking meal since Grace was born).  It was loved by all 🙂

Let us not forget tire swing play.

Because on a glorious spring day like today, tire swings are necessary, as are cuddles from babies, and lots of laughs in the fresh air.  My heart is content and filled this day.  We did rejoice and be glad in this day, and it was a good feeling.

  1. It's good to read such an encouraging report! However, your photos aren't showing up on my computer – tried clicking on the red x on each one, but that didn't work, either, nor could I access your photobucket account the “roundabout” way…but thankfully, you're such a good writer that my imagination could fill in quite a bit!

    This balmy weather is such a blessing after all that has happened, isn't it? Happy St. Patrick's Day – enjoy the sunshine!
