“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

Mommy 'n Me

Leah always wants to join in on the girly stuff whenever I do my makeup or paint my toenails. This time, I decided to let her.

Some new clothes. Don't you think she could be a model?

Sibling Rivalry?

I guess sibling rivalry knows no age limit. Normally these two tend to like each other, Leah is a little mother and takes care of the baby, prentending to feed him a bottle, fetching diapers, and plugging in his binky whenever he looses it. Samuel is always ready to give a smile to his big sister who is quite the entertainer.

But...Leah accidentally stepped on the baby. She is just such a busy bee, and I guess he blends in with the carpet? It's okay, though, he got her back when she got too close and he got a hold of her hair. She doesn't seem to understand this phenomenon.

Actually, come to think of it Samuel punishes himself--this afternoon during tummy time, he managed to gag himself when he got his entire fist into his mouth. Poor guy.

In this series of pictures, Leah was getting down on Samuel's level probably to see what was so exciting about laying on your tummy. Then she proceeded to give him a back treatment with a wire wisk.

Outside Adventure with Daddy

Chris is the designated babysitter during presidency meeting, so last week he took Leah to the duck pond to run and play and chase ducks. I may be biased, but I think she is the most beautiful little girl in the world!
