jane is a month old today. i'm a little bit mad about it, it all goes way too fast. i've said it before but there is nothing on this earth quite like a newborn baby. all i have to do is look at her and my heart tightens up and tears start to swell. i've been thinking lately how i am such an imperfect person, yet Heavenly Father created this little perfect being, from me, for me to teach and raise and love and learn from. what an amazing miracle that is. every time i hold her, i am holding this little perfect piece of me and part of God. maybe he wants to remind us that one day we can be perfect just like Him and just like little children. we have that potential in us, it is just buried deep beneath imperfections.

i need to find a good picture of avery at this stage. i keep telling myself that they don't look that much alike but every time i take a picture of Jane i am proven wrong. she is filling out so nicely and i love it. last night she only woke up once and a chorus of angels sang from heaven, and i actually accomplished something during the day because i woke feeling well rested and rejuvenated, rather than exhausted and lazy. she really is so sweet. but now she is ready to eat, and letting me know it, so i better go.
