Love in the palm of his hands...

Our little Lailah is 4 months old now and growing like a weed. She never ceases to make me laugh...or make me tired. I wish I could say she is sleeping through the night at this point...but I've yet to have that luxury. Thankfully she has two Grandmothers who love her enough to take her on occasion to help me catch up.

I feel like a zombie most of the time, but I really wouldn't trade her for anything! She has discovered her laugh and there for a day she was blowing raspberries - not sure what happened, but I think she may have forgotten how...I am sure it wont be long before she discovers it again. =) She loves to stand and she is liking tummy time much more than several weeks ago. I'm not so sure she is going to ever may be that she takes straight to walking; I suppose only time will tell. And I could be taking a stab in the dark here, but I'm pretty sure she is on a quest to stick her entire fist in her mouth; her hand has become a near permanent fixture to her mouth.

Just as I try to teach her something new every day, she is always teaching me something new, whether it be something about her, something about myself, or, just something about life in general. She really seems to have a better grasp on 'what it's all about' than I do. Curious are the thoughts that run through my head about what she will do and the person she will become. While it's sad to see her growing out of clothes and getting so big, I look forward to seeing her develop and become her own person.

I should have taken a picture like this when she was smaller, but I think it turned out okay...thanks to Lynnie for the idea. =)

  1. Now we know why she's making what Andy called the Zombie sounds. See how smart she is? She's already figured out how to "talk Zombie" so she can converse with her Zombie Mom! :D

  3. P.S. I only snagged the photo idea, you have the talent to make it real!! This photo is absolutely, poignantly, touchingly, sweet!
