One of my favorite things about babies is that they don't have any filters or censors or self consciousness. Look how open and honest their faces are, especially Dee's in this particular photo. I have heaps of photos where that innocence is captured in all 3 of the children. Nothing hidden. Nothing guarded. They expect love. They expect to be taken care of. They don't question their God-given value, simply because they are. They know they're good enough simply because they exist in this world. It makes my heart so tender for them. Because someday that may change and they'll erroneously learn to check their value at the door until someone else hands it back to them. The wisdom of this world will likely humble them. I know it's part of life, a part of growing up, and I will teach them to be strong enough to weather it. But you can bet I will try to shield them from it for as long as I live.
Now why did I have to go and get all serious on you? I can't leave it like that. We better watch a video of happy twin buddies!
