Here are some of our favorite pictures of our girl lately:
I had SOO much fun making cookies with my girl for the first time! I let her "dump" some of the ingredients in and of course there was some taste-testing involved!
Daniel and I were the band nerds. Ha ha. Well, I was a nerd and he was the metal head. In short, we LOVE music and creativity in the Lawson home. A couple of weeks ago, I was able to introduce Naphtali to my trumpet. These are some of my favorite shots from that afternoon. We would love it if she enjoyed music and learned to play an instrument! We shall see what the Lord gifts her with!
She totally looks like she's playing for a Jazz band here!
An area that the Lord is working in my life, is to really take joy in the moments that make up life. One of the struggles I am having as a stay-at-home wife and mother, is getting frustrated and impatient by the little things. It does not seem profitable to finish the same chores daily, to change three poopy diapers in one day (ha- really, that is what happens some days!), to prepare meals, and to clean up cheerios from the living room floor. And yet, the Lord is using these areas of frustration to reveal my impatience and to show me that service, though dirty, is LOVING and honoring to the Lord. It is a noble thing to serve. And in it, there are sweet joys. Like blueberry cinnamon rolls on a Saturday morning!
Or car rides with Daddy in our seminary parking lot to pick up mail!
|Or designing my daughters room one Saturday! So much fun!|
|Or spending a Saturday morning with my girl in our pj's- watering plants and cleaning but enjoying each other's company!|
|A thrift store find that Naphtali is showing off! Mommy has big plans for this little desk- hope for it to be my next DIY project!|
Thankful that the Lord is showing me the beauty of becoming more like Christ in serving my family!
Naphtali has had so much time with her cousins this summer! It has really been a joy to watch her play, learn, and have SOO much FUN with her cousins!! She is trying to give Bethany a kiss in the above picture.
|These are some shots when we went out for ice cream with family!|
|Our girl LOVES music!|
