Playing house with my Baby Doll

The sun is shining today...  and that really helps this hormonal mamma face the day :)
It also allows me to take pictures! 

I felt like a little girl playing with her doll as I wrapped Lucy in a doll blanket and put her in a tiny toy cradle in the girls' room.  She fit perfectly and looked so sweet.  I even ended up rocking her a bit in it to keep her asleep.  So fun.

It all reminded me of something my Dad told me when he and my mom were here for Lucy's birth.  He said he would never forget a conversation he had with me as a young teenager...  During a daddy-daughter conversation, he had asked me what I wanted to "do."  He was referring to college plans, career interests, etc...  I simply told him that I wanted to be a wife and a mom. 

That's all I've ever really wanted... 
To love my husband, to love my babies, to create a home that honors Christ and allows all who enter into it to feel his love. 
....for me there is no greater joy.
