A dear friend of mine frequently has reminded me through the years that we only see a small part of the bigger picture. It is so easy to get weighed down by our narrow vision, and it is important that someone speak truth to you in those moments.
She was my easiest baby. The caboose. Her schedule flexed with the big kiddos. She went everywhere, watched everything, and waited patiently...over and over and over again. I fell deeply in love with my Boo girl.
I won't lie--the last few years with her have been hard. She only likes certain clothes that fit certain ways. She feels deeply and strongly. She laughs loudest, yet cries hardest. I found that I could handle those things decently--consistency, consistency, consistency. As long as I could respond correctly, we were headed in the right direction.
**All of these beautiful pictures were taken this summer in Maine, except for the very last one. It is from Gettysburg.**
