world, meet Violet

I’m not sure what to say about baby Violet other than she makes my heart smile every time I see her.  I almost couldn’t keep it together just making this post. Truly a blessing. I will try my best to show you everything beautiful in this world even when things seem to get harder and harder.  Both of your parents have the biggest hearts in the world, I can only imagine how sweet and soft yours will be.  Trust me when I say no body gives better advice than your mother.  Always listen to her and be sweet to your parents.  You bring us all nothing but joy.  I’m here for you no matter what.  Can’t wait to be friends forever little girl.

lawn mowing

Well it turns out every time I mow my lawn it makes me want to post.  I forget how calming the whole process can be.  I’m not sure if I was even thinking about anything.  While weeding I saved about seven worms.  Poor little guys.  Sometimes I wish I was an earth worm, life would be easier.  There was some sort of huge beetle that I found on the ground that had huge claw like pinchers at the front of it’s head.  It was flipped over on its back but when I tried to flip him over he clearly had a broken leg.  He was squirming around so helpless and I didn’t even have the heart to put him out of his misery.  I just walked away not sure of what to do.  It actually really bothered me.  Basically every weed I shook out to get the bugs off so I didn’t kill them in the garbage bag.  Sometimes the littlest things can make a difference.

After reviewing my last posts I noticed there was not one thing posted about my best friends baby Violet.  Even though I haven’t posted about her yet, trust me when I say I think about her and her family all the time.  She truly is a beautiful baby and I’m happy I’ve gotten to stay close to her.  Family makes me want to start a tiny one of my own.  Baby crazy moments are very common now in my daily thoughts. I feel like I don’t know how I feel. Don’t judge me, I’m hormonal, ha.

Last but not least, a pic of my beautiful baby Bunny from my phone
