ben bought me a new lens as a birthday/mother's day gift. it's this one with the fabulously wide 1.4 f-stop. he made it a point to go together to national camera and try it out so we could use it the next day at a family gathering. he is very sweet to me.
he also gave me a card from our unborn baby girl for mother's day and my birthday. i wept. again, such sweetness.
i really like him a lot. :)
that family gathering was awesome. my niece hannah is such a fun, curious girl who is always on the go. apparently she doesn't like to have her diaper changed because it means she has to stop for a few minutes. if you declare that someone has a stinky diaper, she might blame it on her little sister ("baby") or maybe even grandpa ("gumpa").
and baby grace is growing into such a sweet little lady. she is a very peaceful and happy baby. our little girl is blessed with wonderful cousins on both sides.
although grace is super low-drama, she does strike a "woe is me" pose when eating. :)
speaking of eating, i got my inner foodie on to make bbq chicken pizzas with quinoa crusts. as much as i want to be on the quinoa bandwagon, i am just not impressed with it. the pizza crusts were a good way to use up what i have left, but i don't think i'll buy another bag.
here's a "before." this estate-sale stool is currently halfway through its makeover with the nursery as its final destination. stay tuned.
speaking of the nursery, i wish i could say i was going to miss that lavender, but that would be a lie. very thankful to my parents for their help applying two coats of primer to get it covered for the white paint i picked out!
we're up to the cabin this weekend—i hope yours is restful and fun!
