I want to be careful about expectations and hopes I put on my kiddos.
I EXPECT them to do their best, tell the truth, obey.
I HOPE (and pray expectantly) they will follow God with all their hearts, minds, souls and strength.
I DELIGHT to observe and discover their personalities, eccentricities, likes, dislikes, strengths…eye colors. Isaac has always had very very pretty turquoise eyes. Eloise’s are darker and change from gray to deep blue. I think Eloise’s will keep changing to some other lovely color (I admit I secretly hope she’ll have green eyes because that’s what Isaac first predicted, but obviously have no pointless expectations). I just adore her little three-month-old eyes right now!
I have this fun Sherwin-Williams color matching paint app. I took a picture of Eloise’s gorgeous eyes, and the river near our house, and the sea on New Year’s Day. “Seaworthy” is the color found in both the sea and her sweet eyes. Swoon!
