i am constantly humbled by the reality of how blessed I am to be a mother. to be able to carry and bring a child into this world is a blessing that i wouldn't trade for anything. i am even more appreciative of my favorite man and that he works so hard so that i can be home with our beautiful child. she is my source of inspiration, the purpose behind each breathe i take, and all my dreams wound up into one adorable, energetic, and beautiful little life. i am thankful for this little girl. i am thankful for her health and her vibrance. she is a sweet little baby, but has some "tiger" in her for sure, and i love that.
today i am reminded to realign my focus upon what is most important. i will strive to keep my focus on my little angel and work to enjoy all the simple things i seem to let pass by me at times. she is growing too fast. oh, my sweet baby is 16 months old today!
here are 16 words she says and ones we hear quite frequently.
1. mama (of course, THE most important!)
3. baba (bottle)
4. bobie (colby - our dog)
5. nana, pawpaw, mimi, pop, mae mae, kev kev (grandparents, aunt, uncle)
6. ju ju (our neighbor, julie)
7. side (a long emphasis on the "s" ... meaning outside)
9. pees (please ... as she signs it as well)
11. kaka (tucker ... the neighbors dog)
12. bangie (blankie / blanket)
13. night night
14. bye bye / hi
16. bir (bird)
oh how i long for the day to sit and hold a baby again. she's so grown up. these days at the hill house are quite entertaining and unending it seems. she loves to play outside so we should all be pretty tan by the end of summer. she's a picky eater, but loves to eat! words cannot express what she means to me, as all you mothers know.
happy 16 months, mama's girl!
