Jireh is 10

I remember how crazy it felt to have my first child turn double digits. Now I’ve got two!

Sweet Jireh. Hair straight as a pin, but otherwise the classic “girl with the curl.” She is earnest and quick and fiery and smart and capable and talented in every way. Kind hearted and loving and quite an instigator. She loves reactions – giving them and getting them. What a whirlwind. Her father’s daughter in more ways than one – she is the lone Hodges side lookalike and also has lots of her dad’s temperament traits.

These preteen years are tough to navigate. I usually don’t feel qualified to parent until, like, the fourth child crosses a stage, so I’m still bumbling along.  It’s one of my greatest joys to see how diligently my second born assists at Mass and prays. No matter how difficult a day with her might be this gives me hope that she is developing her own relationship with Our Lord and the sacraments.

How about a photo walk down memory lane?
