Early Riser

Charis is normally my first one up for the day (actually Mercy still wakes up at 6 nurses and goes back to sleep) but this morning I was folding clothes on my bedroom floor and Charis decided she would pick out all the baby washcloths and fold them for me. :)

Folding diapers is C & C's normal job besides helping load the washer, cycle from washer to dryer and take out dry clothes. She was so cute when she asked me if she could do the washcloths and made sure I handed her every one. I didn't show her how and she did all the first ones correctly, then I think she got confused and she started folding them like prefold thirds! :)

After she was done folding she said, "Take a picture Mommy, it looks like a mountain!" :)

Such a sweet little helper. Oh, and I don't know what happened to her head, she didn't come crying to me about it but it appeared after she had played outside with her brother. And yes, as you can tell, my bedroom still does not have baseboards... ;)


  1. hey Jenifer,

    I can't see the pictures (?)...tried reloading it several times and opening it in another browser...but still doesn't work.

    luv you,
    Ruth Ann

    ps: pictures aside, the story is really cute - I always love it when someone just wants to help you and isn't forced to. That is so sweet!

  2. Hi Ruth Ann,

    This post acted funny when I did it. I actually posted it through picasa but then it took me through blogger. When I first posted it the pics came up but then they started not showing up, even for me. So I went back and deleted those and re-loaded the pics again...enjoy. :)

  3. the pictures ARE adorable Jenifer, thanks for reposting them. :) I love that outfit on her, and it matches your blog design too cute!!

    God bless!

  4. What a sweet helper. I love her jumper btw. Did you make it?

  5. Hi Susan, That jumper Charis is wearing is the one I had been working on last year at Thanksgiving and wanted her to wear down to Williston. Suzanna was wearing that cute brown jumper with pink flowers on it that day. I love pink and brown on my little girls! :)

  6. Hey Jenifer,
    Great to catch up with you! Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog! Wow, your children are beautiful... and they are the ages of my younger three :) Abby is a tad bit older than your Caleb. It was fun to see how the Lord has blessed you!!
