Last night I sat,
and rocked this girl,

the girl, who once,

rocked my world.

And rock it indeed! Remember this post? In my wildest dreams I couldn't have imagined what an amazing surprize we were in store for, turns out, she's pretty awesome.

I was rocking her, the shadows of the slats on her crib falling across her face, her body warm and heavy, her sweet breath against my cheek, her eyes heavy with sleep and I was overcome with love and gratitude all over again.

Thank you, God! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.


  1. It was fun to read how you found out you were pregnant. She is such a beautiful girl too. That's how I feel when I'm rocking my 16 month old son to sleep.

  2. Awwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!! What a sweetie!!

    That brought me back to the days when my baby girl stormed into our world and threw our lives for a tailspin. Life has never been the same, and it's all the more beautiful for having her in it!

  3. Thank you for sharing with us the awe and wonder of each of God's little blessings!

It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
