Homemade


Birthed right here at home,
every pinch of pudge from her only nourishment of my breasts
,
the light on her face
and smiles in her eyes
because of all our love and affection.

  2. I can't believe she's already 6 months old!
    And my word, in this picture she looks just like your youngest boy (sorry...major lack of sleep is blocking my memory from his name at the moment!)

  13. Why do they have to grow up? I know I'm going to blink and Dash will be 6 months old. I already feel like I'm losing his tiny babyness. I'm holding on as tightly as I can!

  24. Oh gosh, isn't she just a doll. I can't believe our babies are already 6 months old. Blows my mind.

    Is she wearing a barrette? So stinking cute.

  25. Isn't it amazing how beautiful and healthy a baby can get all from breastmilk! Levi was almost exclusively breastfed for the first year, and the fatter he got the more amazed I was at what God provides for us.
