Ever Joy's Birthday
We had a barbecue here at home and watched some home video of Ever Joy as a newborn. She didn't have an easy start so there is a lot of video in the hospital during her first week of life. It is always a little sad to watch, but a good reminder of God's goodness, loving kindness, and that these kids that I get to take care of belong to Him.
Pav commented on how much life has changed in the past six years. It was much more simple back in the days we lived in a travel trailer with one little baby. We laughed at how much Ever's giggle is the same now as when she was six months old, and how all the toys in our home fit into one shoe box. I wouldn't trade simplicity for what we have now. Life is definitely more challenging, chaotic at times, and louder; but there are lots more giggles, and funny stories, and hugs, and love.
