Hey, happy girl. I love watching your eyes lately, because they are understanding so much. You're figuring out where things belong and how they work and who mommy is talking to on the phone. I am amazed at how smart you are! Your hair is long enough to be bed-headed and you're starting to look more like a little girl than a baby, but you still smell babyish... mmm. Lately you are:

getting your first batch of teeth, lifting the heaviest possible things you can find, taking awesome naps, using a whispering voice when you're deep in thought, putting a pen to paper and pretending to write, pushing a pink stroller around the living room, stirring and handing a cup to mommy, being so gentle with everything you touch, and hugging. and always smiling.

Oh summer, she could not be more beautiful! Video like crazy...my boys are 15 & 17 yrs old, and videos from their childhood are so precious. Just recording simple, everyday moments is the best thing ever! Love that you are posting again...you are my fave! {{I sent you a card at camp 2yrs ago...just think how much has happened since then!?! }}

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
