Spring is all about new beginnings and firsts. First blooms, first warm day in what seems like years, first bbq. Naomi had a lot of first last week. She went swinging in the park (one of my favorites) for the first time. She had her first visit to the beauty shop for her first haircut. She played on a piano for the first time. Wore her first Easter dress on her first Easter. Went for her first wagon ride. I can't believe all that she is doing and growing so fast. I try to capture all the firsts. There are so many. Other firsts I am just so excited for are her walking, her first birthday (I love birthdays, they are a HUGE deal to me) first time eating watermelon and sweetcorn. Her first prayer,and the first time she calls me mama, intentionally. What a privilege to get to experience so much of someone's life. WOW! Motherhood, I was always excited for it, couldn't wait to be one, and it is still overwhelming and more rewarding then I could have ever expected. Thank-you Lord for giving us children and your First born.

Dirt and Daddy

Yesterday was a gorgeous 75 degree day so I decided to take a break from painting (that's another story for another day)and take Ty lunch out at our Haygrove by Yutan. It was so nice just to soak up the sun and breath in the sweet aroma of freshly tilled soil. Ty loves showing Naomi all about farming. She helped daddy drive the tractor yesterday and he enjoyed it just as much if not more than she did. She loves her some daddy! She always has a huge smile for him when he comes home. As a mother there is nothing that I enjoy more than watching others love and enjoy my daughter as much as I do. As a wife, I fall in love with my husband all over again every time I see him love up on our little girl.
