{19 Months}

Hattie's 19 months old today, and it's warm enough here that we went outside to do this to celebrate:

It was her first encounter with the sprinkler. At first, when I had it turned up really high, she said, "It's raining, Mama!" Then when I turned it down to her height she called it, "baby water," and went around picking up leaves and cleaning them in the water.

Change of subject: I can't believe Lent starts in 2 days! I've been really focusing on preparing for this season for the last week or so. I'll be back on Ash Wednesday to talk more about that.

My child is awake......gotta go rescue her from her crib.

Happy Monday!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
