My Avery. So happy. And so happy about the simplest things! (Most babies are!)
The other night we went for a walk. And every time I stopped to check on her she looked at me with the biggest smile on her face. She really loves the outdoors and I think the fresh air is good for her. But it really sparked a thought in my mind.
Isn't it fascinating how babies are so happy with the simplest things?
Seeing mom or dad walk through the door, playing a game, having a full tummy, waking up from a good night's sleep, taking a bath, going on a stroller ride, having a 'conversation' with someone. And then it sparked another thought in my mind.
I need to appreciate the simple things in my own life.
I understand that the thinking capabilities in a baby versus an adult are much different but it really made me realize that I often take for granted little things. I've made it a personal goal of mine to live in the moment and to appreciate some of the simpler things in life: seeing Greg walk through the door, appreciating that we live in a safe neighborhood where our family can take a walk, being grateful for a good night sleep even with a baby. The list could go on and one but you get my point. Oh the things you can learn from such a tiny creature. You start looking at life through a different lense.
