As Claire's vocal discovery phase is full upon us, we've noticed something kind of funny. When she is happy, she chatters "da-da-da-da-da". And when she's on the verge of tears or seriously irritated, she spits out "ma-ma-ma-ma-ma!" Micah believes it's because she associates him with happiness and me the, well, not-so-happy-times. How can this be?!
Why blog? Because I'm far from what I've always known as "home". Because I'm a journal-er at heart and from way back. Because I'm afraid of the precious moments and funny memories my little family make on a daily basis being forgotten by going unrecorded. Because these ARE my "good ol' days". Take your pick : I hope to capture here a tiny glimpse of this simple and richly blessed thing I call my life.
