Two - 30 Days of Beauty

Ben's brother is getting married tomorrow, so we're in Lincoln. Anne loves her grandparents, and it's nice to come for a visit. This one will be brief since we have to be back for work and school Monday. Travel today was great. Traffic was fast but not too heavy. And Anne slept. Aren't sleeping children precious?

And I've rediscovered a crochet project this week:
I pulled it out of the closet and remembered how pretty it is! It's a repeating ribbed shell pattern. It will be a small afghan for Anne; I started it before she was born. I guess that's the other thing - she still doesn't have a mommy-made blanket and I feel like she needs one! So I'm working on it again.

And I don't think this really goes with the beauty theme, but I had a flash of brilliance and discovered how to take pictures of Anne!
While I was taking pictures of the blanket she wanted, as usual, to see what pictures I was taking. She's noticed that pictures show up on the back of the camera (on the LCD). But my camera's LCD is one that flips out and around. So I flipped it out so that she could see it while I take pictures of her; I looked through the viewfinder. She loved it! She sat still for about 20 pictures. Not all of them came out, of course, but it worked better than usual.

And to close, a beautiful quote, courtesy of ...infinitely learning...
“There is no such thing as a simple act of compassion
or an inconsequential act of service.
Everything we do for another person has infinite consequences.”

I wonder if there will ever come a time when I don't want to just sit and stare at my sleeping child. Does she really look that much sweeter when she's sleeping or is it just the fact that she's
that makes it so wonderful? Hmmmm.

Anne is going to fall in love with that blanket when you're done with it. She'll end up with her security item after all!

Your photo trick is the cutest thing ever!

Hope the rest of your trip's going well.
