Toddler Tuesday

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

The majority of my evening last night was spent rocking/holding/soothing my baby who has swimmer's ear. And while sometimes this frustrates me (I have an endless to-do list!) I chose to find the joy in it. I won't always be able to enjoy her little hands stroking my face, her tiny lips kissing mine, or her small hands touching my hair. After listening to an inspiring sermon yesterday I'm striving to make a conscious effort to choose joy over complaining. I may as well tattoo it on my forehead since I know I will need constant reminders to do so. But for now it's written on a post-it in my kitchen (because let's be real that's where I spend most of my time...).

Speaking of are the rest of our pictures from our joyous 4th of July celebration!
