Girl Meets Toy

I cried when I saw these pictures.

When John was little, my friend Patti would always say, "He's everything we wanted in a baby." So true. And without a doubt my little blond-haired, blue-eyed wonder is everything I ever, ever, ever wanted in a little girl.

God, I am so grateful!

(She just dumped a handful of clean laundry in the toilet, dragged it through the house, and then slipped on the puddle she made. Her sweetness is yet undiminished. True love it is.)

What a beautiful child (mayhem and all)! I've been reading Lorna Byrne's Stairways to Heaven (she's a modern Irish mystic) and she often talks about how children are more spiritually open because they haven't been away from Heaven for all that long. I think Mozart also said something similar: "It is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us". That makes complete sense to me.

I gave Mackenzie her first doll when she turned one and I have similar pictures of her just holding her baby. So precious!
