eden these days

eden is super aware of the baby growing in me, and even though i knew in my head that it would be a sweet thing to behold, i was no where near prepared for the mama heart melting that is going on over here.  

eden: baby how  you day?
eden: baby you need a snack?
eden: baby come out! 
i fully expected her to notice baby and talk to it once my belly was an obviously huge entity. but the fact that she already engages with baby now, when my belly is still just a small little bump makes me so excited for how she will continue to respond as baby grows.  

and right now eden is just delighting me with her attitude about so many things.  we work so hard to try and help her have a thankful attitude, knowing that only God can give her a truly thankful heart.  and lately we have just seen such a pay off.  i will tell her something like 'look eden, i made you these wings for your tinkerbell costume' and she will respond right away and with glee 'ooooh dap you mommy!  i yub yooooo'.  i just can't even describe the joy at hearing her be thankful and delighted when i have done something for her.  and she thanks me all the time, with the same joy and delight.  i am not sure how long it will last, but i am soaking it up right now.

other things she has said lately include 

'oh my goodness' when she is excited
and 'oohhh mommy' when i do something silly 

whenever i leave her in the mornings: 'mommy i wanna be wif you, i miss you'.  cue heart explosion in this poor mommy 

the other day 'ohh pettty clouds, pettty sky.  God made sky!  i wanna thank God!'

i know that she does not understand the words that she is saying in any significant way, but every time she utters something in amazement and attributes it to God, i say a quiet little prayer that she will always be captivated by Him.  


  1. She is so smart and funny ! It really is heart and mind exploding seeing your little one interact with your even littler one...
