This is the Life

Last week I began my mom post for Thursday.  I put it aside and never quite got back to it.  I wrote this post for Brianna's Life Defined but never got the pictures up.  Today I took the liberty to combine the two for last week's Mom post and Life Defined.   For those who asked and are patiently waiting, Winnie's story is coming soon.  In the meantime, enjoy some of the cuteness that is occupying all our time in Wachter world. 


Peace... knowing all is well, not because things go right or our way, but because He is in control.
Joy... receiving the gift of new life
Contentment... resting in the hands of our Savior and the arms of our loved ones.
Gaiety... the smiles, sounds and expressions as 7 siblings make a home for their newest club member
Cozy... watching a baby fall asleep in my arms
Delightful... listening for the coos of a waking baby
Wonder... considering the miracle of a perfect new life
Frolic... watching Ellie brush her sister's hair
Treasure... knowing that, at least for now, in our little corner of the world, everything is right with the world.


  1. so glad for a glimpse. congrats again. can't wait to hear her story!!! how precious!

  2. I could never get tired of pictures of Carmella. She is so precious! And that picture of Ellie in her mob cap reminds me of my littlest sister, Ava (4), because she goes around the house in the very same garb. We even have some pictures of her folding towels with it on. Too cute. :)
