Since Michael has accused me of playing favorites with my children,
allow me to disprove him 🙂

On Sunday, Julia looked out the window and saw the neighbor kids playing their little hearts out.
She immediately informed me that she needed to “go outside and run!”
So run we did.
To the playground in fact.
And she could not have been happier – she ran up to every person she saw and exclaimed: “I runnin!!!!”
Even 2 and 1/2 year olds know that sunshine and fresh air are reasons for celebration.


I love these pictures because they capture her joy
(and spunk…er, attitude? as evidenced by the picture on the left.)
This girl not only laughs constantly,
she makes ME laugh.
I’m grateful for her.
