joy in a white onesie



liv is the source of so many of my smiles.

i love:
*her foreign olivia-language.
*her chub that is disappearing by the day.
*her grin full of crazy toddler teeth.
*her wobbly run.
*her serious dancing skills.
*her obsession with water and bath time.
*her bright, beautiful eyes full of wonder & awesomeness.
*her cheerful laugh that fills our home with all kinds of happy.

and yes. i even love her crazy-destructive messes, and her occasional whining, and her obsession with stripping at the most inconvenient of times. i love her
not-awesome behavior at church & when she spills her dad's QT on the carpet. i even love that she's completely destroyed her crib by wood-chucking the entire railing.

i love all of those things.
because they remind me that she's mine for keeps.

what a gift.

We have "wood chuck" marks on our headboard... from a certain now 15 year old who thought he'd cut his teeth on it... and I still love him.

I can't believe how much she has slimmed down since I have been gone! Crazy!

Lexi has done the same thing to her crib, which I painstakingly painted by hand before her birth....

Wood chucking seems to run in the family. Maybe in the world family, but especially in ours. Love that Liv. Goodness, how I love her.

Babies in onesies are my favorite! She is so adorable and at such a fun age. I can't believe how fast they grow!

Aw, she's so grown up! All our little Dixon-ish girls are changing so quickly. Sniff.
