What a wonderful weekend with family.  Tonight as we said our bedtime prayers we talked about all of the great moments and our many discoveries.  These were my words for Julia:
My little Julia Claire -
Sometimes I am pretty sure that the whole world could stop turning and I would be content to bask in this moment for the rest of my life.  I said that the moment you were born and I say it to myself on a daily basis when you wrap me up in that life-loving, whirlwind self of yours.  
Goodness, you make me thankful and humble and exuberant all at the same time.  
Thank you for a whole new perspective on life my sweet girl.
May you always be so carefree and filled with compassion.  May you always hold tightly to your faith.  May you always know how much joy you bring to this world.
And Julia's words for me?
Bless the squirrel with God and may all of the horses have carrots.  
Yes, Amen.


  1. Lauren, I can't even tell you how much joy reading your blog brings me. Julia is such a sweet girl, and this is simply adorable.

  2. I know I am far behind, but I am trying to get caught up on the Gray's world. Oh my gosh, I love Julia so much. She is so precious. xoxo
