Purity of Two

Two and a half has brought this creative and imaginative play that is an absolute delight to watch. It is pure, it is funny and sometimes even a little mean. It is fun watching her learn and grow and seeing her mind work. The things this little girl comes up with make us laugh and smile every day.

She loves to put her babies "night-night" and when they don't listen - they often go to time out. Here is bunny in a time out. Her new thing is to bring the baby to us afterward to say "sorry" and have a hug. She even takes their hand (or paw in this case) to rub our arm like she does to us when she says "sorry". So precious.

She is really into clothes and shoes... She has the "taking off" part down - for the most part. I found her like this after a nap with her shirt partially off her head - like a shrug. This picture was too cute not to share - but I did a label for modesty. I have to say, it took a little creativity on my part to get it off!

She was not happy I was taking pictures instead of getting her out of her crib.
More loving on babies. She had a whole system set up in her play castle tent. She'd even yanked her quilt and pillow for her bed. She had Caillou all swaddled and was so proud. Who knew her baby burp cloths would make good baby blankets one day?

Speaking of play tents... This was a cell pic I captured one day at playgroup. Elyse, Gabby and Lucien - a pile of sweet kiddos.

And, the morning she was really quiet... Window painting with my moisturizer.

From the sweet moments of a toddler's day to rainbows. I remember I saw a rainbow in the sky the morning we drove to Seattle to get a second opinion on my Mom's terminal diagnosis of ALS.

I saw that remember and thought - for sure it must mean it can't be true. But, it was. The diagnosis was correct and we lost her a year and a half later. Sue, Elyse and I saw these amazing rainbows on our wet drive back from OJ's house. I couldn't help think of my Mom. And now, I can't help but think of my Aunt who just learned of a new cancer diagnosis. I am so afraid for her and our family. But, I think of the hope in that rainbow and am reminded to pray and love.

My cell phone couldn't come close to capturing the beauty of these rainbows - can you see the second one on the right? God is amazing and even through what we went through with my Mom, I experienced blessings that I never would have experienced. My love and prayers for Vickie.

Lastly, I leave you with my sweet girl. She loved her hair this day and I thought I'd share a closer look.

And my, is her hair getting so long!

May you experience the blessings of today. Love from our home to yours.
