baby naps

Sometimes I just watch Lila nap in her crib. And try to soak in her baby sweetness.
I look at those chubby little thighs and tiny feet and know that one day soon
they will be strong legs that can stand on their own.
That her little head full of soft peach fuzz will hold bouncing curls
that wave in the breeze as she giggles.
That her hands will reach out to hold mine while she is skipping up the street
to play with her friends.
And that her sleeping baby face will become a little girl. And I thank God that He blessed us with this beautiful child. And pray that I will not be sad for the moments she is growing older and instead celebrate the life she has been given.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."
~Jeremiah 29:11
