Diva or Ball Player?



Londyn turned two weeks old yesterday. Seriously, where does the time go? I am loving being a mom, but sheesh, it is a lot of work. These are just some things that I love and wanted to write down:

1. She wakes up at 3:00ish every morning, and I love this hour she's awake. It's such a quiet, peaceful hour for just the two of us. She's so alert; she's studying my face, as I'm studying her's.

2. Her hands. She LOVES her hands. I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not, but when Londyn was born, she managed to slide one of her arms out with her head. And I told Tagg, hopefully that doesn't mean she's a diva. And his reply was, Nope, she's going to be a Basketball Player, already practicing her shot. Anyway, she can't stand to have her arms swaddled, she always manages to wiggle both arms out and then her arms go straight by her face. It's adorable, and we love it. She's also discovered her hair. She'll reach up and just play with it. I think this is her telling me that the bows will not be staying in her hair for very long. :o)

3. Her grunting. She does this distinctive grunt that only her parents could love. :o)

4. Her facial expressions. I'm amazed at the time I spend just watching her.

5. I love the sweet spirit she brings to our home. Our home has been more peaceful and filled with love, even with the couple of rough nights of crying. I'm so thankful for such a wonderful husband and sweet little girl.

I think she will be a Diva Basketball player!! She is one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen!! I loved all the little things you wrote about. It makes me miss my kiddos being infants.

She is so perfect. She is gorgeous. Babies are so sweet and innocent, but it definetely goes by way too fast before you know it she'll be crawling around getting into everything. I say, diva, just cuz that's what girls are supposed to be!

Darci, I don't know if you will check this, but I am having a Lia Sophia Jewlrey party at my house on Wed at 7. I would love for you to come and bring your baby if possible. Hopefully April is coming, so you can ask her for directions or call.
