From Morning to Night, my Heart is Full


Yesterday morning, on the day of the summer solstice, I found her in the sun's path, exploring her favorite drawer. 



Later, there were things to study, books to read, and ottomans to climb.

In the evening, after her bath, I found her again at her favorite drawer.




Later, there were bottles to find and babies to feed.





From morning to night, in ordinary moments, on ordinary days, my heart can barely hold all of the love that belongs to her, my darling cupcake.

  1. She is SO beautiful and precious! From all you write about her, I'm guessing it's true...being a grandparent is even better than being a parent.

    I love being a mom so much. I can't imagine there is anything better. I look forward to discovering that I'm wrong and that grandparenthood is the icing on the cake. (I can't look forward to it too vocally, as my daughter just got married in october, and I promised I wouldn't pressure for grandchildren.)

    Thanks for beautifying my day with these sweet photos.

    Blessings,
    Patti @ Embracing Home

    1. Thank you, Aunt Gayle. She had a doctor's appointment that morning. That's one of the little dresses I got her the night we went shopping.
