Muscles and George

He's very brave.

Every six months holding tightly to the hand of his friend and his mama waiting for his injections.

He knows what his injections are perhaps better than a five year old boy should know. 

But he asks and we tell him. 

We do our best to share honestly and openly all intertwined and surrounded with heaps and heaps of love.

He has the right to know. 

To know who he is and be confident in it.

The injections loosen his muscles and help him to walk. 

On his own. 

No wheelchair, no walker, no crutches.


Oh, yeah baby.

The Three

Up at 5:15 today. That's a.m!

I am trying to implement a new schedule. 

For me. For my children. 

Three has thrown me for a loop and I need to get my feet under me. 

Here's to today.

To My Four Year Old Girl

Ivy Pearl, you are four today.

I can't believe it! Four years old!!! Oh, how you've grown.

You are a dreamer. And a rule follower.

It's a fascinating combination.

You love dancing and fairies and cupcakes. You are also sure to never have too much screen time, or eat too much sugar, or go anywhere near an electrical outlet.

You are my sidekick. The best little sister and the sweetest big sister.

When you grow up, you want to be a pharmacist.

And a mermaid.

I pray for you, darling girl. And when I pray for you, I also pray for me. That I might be more sure of who I am, so in turn you will see it, and know who you are...a beautiful daughter of God. 

This world can be scary, but oh, Sweetness, there is so much beauty around you. Find it!

Happiest Birthday, Pearlie. You are so very loved.
