Keeping up

Yesterday, after dinner at the farm, we drove over to the hayfields to test out our video camera and get some footage for a video about the farm {more on that later}.

The light was gorgeous so I went along with my camera.  As the kids were running up the hill, I noticed that Jo was keeping up.  She is growing up.  I am trying not to be too sad about the passing of her babyhood.  It was a magical time for me, as a mother.  They all are, but for some reason, I’m feeling the passing of this season more keenly with Joséphine.  Perhaps it is the realization that I haven’t many more opportunities for this now that I am growing older.  And it makes each day with my smallest children that much more precious.

Keeping Up

She has grown from a beautiful baby into a beautiful little girl.  And I’m sure I caught a glimpse of the beautiful grown-up girl she will become.
