Last week Amanda and Cassandra came and we went for a walk outside. Look how baby Elena is looking at her aunt. She knows that we will have fun together through the years.
Such a delightful warmth in the arms.
Diaper change before we go!
Cassandra is trying to remember how to put the baby wrap on.
Sweet mama with her first baby.
We sat for a while and enjoyed the view off the mountain.
Elena is two months old now. Since I took these photos she’s grown even more bright and aware. Babies change quickly….and so do the leaves on the trees. There is more red out now to join all the yellow of a week ago. Some of the trees have already lost most of their leaves.
I couldn’t get her to look at me so I turned around to see what was so interesting.
I was so tickled to see that it was a mirror!
Another diaper change, lunch, conversation, and it was the end of our sister morning. We loved every minute.

“Mom, what makes a rainbow?” asked Seth. “Sunshine and rain,” I answered. Sarah added, “And tiny evaporators.” We were going to music lessons. I stopped the car three times to take photos.
It is good that the heart be established by grace. Hebrews 13:9
