Missing Out

Since moving and working more than I have since baby was born, I feel like I haven't had the time to cherish the little things in our life. Particularly the things our baby is learning and doing. She has changed so much in such a short about of time, I can't keep up. So I've gone back in my  memory to write down a few little things I want to remember....

*She loves to unplug cords from the wall. It takes me way longer to vacuum than it should.

*Cony is the only one who can get her to sleep at church. I've tried and keep failing.

*Mimicking is her ner favorite game. Whether it's shaking her head yes or no or raising her hand. While at Nana's she'll lay with the remote on my mom's bed pretending to watch TV. Last week when she had a bad cold and we were wiping her nose 24 times a day- she tried to do the same to us.

*She'll bring me books all day long and I'll read about 2 pages and she's off to get the next book. She's slowly getting better about sitting in my lap and getting through a whole book.

*Our new night routine for hugs is her laying her head on my shoulder and patting my back. I cherish this because up until now she hasn't been much of a cuddlier. Even if it's only for one minute, I'll take it.

*She'll bring me her shoes and jacket and head straight to the door.

*Points to Gracie and any other dog and says something like "Daaaa"... still working on the g.

*Brought me her favorite book the other day and pointed to the cow on front page and said "maa".

Last night while Cony was putting up her chandelier in her bedroom and she was taking a bath, I caught her slowly sneaking her head up to see me.  Her personality makes my heart full.
