We had an unexpected afternoon – Zoe wanted to go home with Grandpa and Grandma after church! So after stopping by our house on the way out for an extra change of clothes, her bunny and paccy (yes, she *does* still have that… there’s only so much you can change in a little girl’s life at one time! ), off she went! And delighted she was. Just a-grinning away in the back seat. Thanks, Mama Yoder!
So Ben and I had the afternoon to ourselves! Well, almost. Baby Leah was still here, but it was a sweet time of actually *talking* over the BLT’s we had for lunch. Been a while since that happened!
But we both missed her. Funny how that happens. You get a little break, and then you start crying cuz you realize what it would be like if something would happen to your precious little girl, how empty it would feel.
Our thoughts were stirred that way through the sermon this morning, and our pastor sharing how they lost one of their little girls just around her first birthday in a car accident. Wow. I cannot imagine. Hearing things like that make me just want to treasure these days with all of my heart!
I had been wanting a few snapshots of Daddy and Leah, and it just wasn’t happening. Today, while the bacon was frying in the oven, I saw the light was coming in just right through the kitchen window so I grabbed my camera and took a few of Ben and Her Tinyness…
some black and white…
and some color
I’m just in awe of the size difference between their hands. Her little fingers can’t even wrap around his thumb!
I love these next two, despite Leah’s inability to look at the camera.
What a wonderful Daddy this little girl has…
