Family and Time

Bear learned about ears in his Sunbeams class and came home with these.  As soon as we walked in the house he wanted to write "Spy Ears" on them.  I could not get over how adorable he looked wearing them. 
 He has really taken to his baby Sis the past few weeks.  Up until now, he didn't pay much attention to her, but now he plays with her so sweetly.  I love watching them begin to build a friendship.
 Belle is growing up way too fast.  She acts like a little kid instead of a baby these days.  Even though she can't talk in words we can understand, she babbles all day and has the cutest expressions.  Tonight she gave her first family prayer and it was heart melting.  She "knelt" down (lays her whole body flat on the floor) and Daddy prompted her to start.  She then proceeded to jabber a few "sentences" and then said "amen".  Afterwards she got up, pointed to the floor, squinted her eyes, and blabbered all about how she had just said the prayer. 
Her cheese face:
 It seriously blows my mind that this was her one year ago.  Some days can seem to go on and on, but in reflection I recognize how brief this mortal life really is.  I feel so grateful to know that families can last through the eternities.
