Sometimes I like to sleep in my bassinet, but I’m going to have to trade this thing in soon. I have a new baby cousin on the way in a few weeks and he or she is going to need it.
That’s right. My reign as Baby of the Extended Family is coming to a close.
I’m alright with that though. It was a good run. I’m ready to hand over the bonnet and kick back for awhile, read some books, play with some toys… Just so long as I don’t have to give up baffs or milks. Dats really all I care about.
It’s the Superbowl or something today. I don’t even really know what that is,
but Nana & Papa and MeeMee came over and I got lots of loves. I like loves!!
My caterpillar friend and I had a friendly discourse about some things.
I told him all about how my Mom tried to sneak Activia yogurt into my milkies.
We both agreed that was just downright uncalled for and DISGUSTING.
I’d rather just have diarrhea, thank you very much!
Thank you, Nora! Mommy loves you!!!!!
(Whispering:) We were able to sneak some probiotics into Nora’s milkies from a capsule without raising any suspicions. Things seem to gradually be getting a little bit better!
I had a beautiful day today from within the cozy confines of our warm house. Nora had just settled in for a comfortable afternoon nap. I had intended to organize some things around here when I noticed the excitement of flurries outside. Without too much deliberation I took my front row seat to gaze upon the animated performance of wild birds and bustling flakes of snow outside my window.
A delicate white lace began to adorn each stark tree branch as the enormous flakes tumbled down from the great white sky. An ornate arrangement of cardinals decorated the branches while big flakes deflected off of their smooth feathered frocks. A deep sense of peace and gratitude settled upon me. It was then that I realized life will never ever be perfect, but there are these gifted moments where everything is beautiful. Everything was perfect for just a moment, a moment that I was almost too busy to notice.
The stillness and beauty of the afternoon was incredibly therapeutic and refreshing.

“Oh, wait, what? Am I missing something??!!”
He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down. Then everyone stops working so they can watch his power.
(Job 37:6, 7 NLT)
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10 NIV)
