My lil' helper

Having a two year old in the house is such a delight! I am amazed at how much Charissa is learning -- she is like a little sponge, just soaking up information.

Counting our fingers and toes, helping set the table, reading books and finding letters of the alphabet that she knows, putting new words in sentences, singing action songs together, painting our toe-nails, helping me roll out pizza dough...what a joy to watch her learn and spend time together!


The other day I asked her if she wanted to play with her 'little people' (her favorite toys right now). She hesitantly looked up at me and said, "No."

"Would you like to help me do laundry?" I asked. Her little face totally lit up -- "YES!" It was so sweet.

Love you, little sis!!

ADORABLE!!! :) Thanks so much for sharing Bethany...this brightened my day! :) Seeing Charissa makes me wish for a little sister again...I'd take one any day, mind you...but am thankful for the ones God has given me, even though everyone is growing up so quickly!!

Love you,
Ruth Ann

Having a little sister (or sisters) in the house is such a blessing! I have a little three year old sister and she is so sweet!

The moment is short, but the memories last forever!

Do you know which of your readers have a blog that has a link to modest clothing websites? I ran across it once, but now I can't seem to remember it.

Awwww....that's so sweet! She has the most adoreable smile!:) I love having a two year-old around the house! They constantly keep you going yet manage to make you stop and appreciate the 'little' things in life.

Very nice! It's always nice to have a little help-er.

I like the poetry by the way.

To: Anonymous. Somebody asked a while back about the links to the modest clothing website. Well, they're on AJ's blog I think. Here's the link.
