This was my view most of the time yesterday while we were at Woodward Park. Lauren was going and I was running to keep up! On occasion when I did caught her, we’d hold hands and a felt such a sense of rightness and also longing. This time next year, she’ll be in school full time. I simply yearn for the impossible…for time to stand still!
…that time could stand still. Look at the innocence reflected in this one fleeting moment. A child believing that wishes can come true with one swift blow. It’s magical, inspiring, and adoring. It amazes me how there are instances that I am able to capture that evoke so much emotion in me. When I see this picture one word surpasses them all: LOVE.
This whole month has been full of love: LP’s love for all things – bugs, trees, worms, weeds and our love for Lauren and her humorous outlook on life! Check these out!
I like all bugs. Ladybugs are my favorite and then butterflies are next. And why I like mean bugs is because they can’t help it if they are poisonous and can kill you if they bite you. They have to live too you know.” 2/22/12
While on a nature walk, “All small trees need a good hug once in a while” 3/1/12
“These three tall weeds caught my eye.” (Picking all three, then pausing and finally picking another one). “I couldn’t help it, it was lonely.” 3/1/12
“Oh my gosh!! Why do they still have their Christmas lights up? It’s super late…I don’t even want to play with my Christmas toys anymore. Oh my gosh!” 3/3/12
Astonished at seeing a child standing on top of a SUV in a parking lot, “Are my eyes right?!” 3/7/12
Lauren put Maggie into her crate and said, “Nap, nap. Sweat dreams. I love you.” She blew kisses and smiled super big. I was overflowing with pride to see how much she enjoyed taking good care of Maggie when LP responded, “It feels so good that she has to nap and I don’t.” 3/11/12
Maggie likes to eat worms. After a morning rain, I found LP out on the back patio in her pjs “rescuing worms” by picking them off the patio and throwing them back into the grass. 3/13/12
“Mom, I’m having a big day! My butterfly catching turned to frog catching and then my frog catching turned to snail catching!” 3/16/12

Springtime wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Woodward Park to bask in the sunshine and daffodils. A gorgeous day spent with a gorgeous girl! Check out some pictures, click here.
She looks like an angle, acts like an angle, sounds like an angle, smells like an…well maybe not smells, but I think I made my point. Seriously, there are days that Lauren embodies all things that are swwet and today was one of those days. Here are a few pictures I took of our sweet little angle, click here.
