It's something I overhear Hadassah say every now and then. The greatness of this little blessing is still a wonder for the big sister, and I love that.
The moment Hadassah first came in to meet Emma after she was born was such a great moment. She was all smiles and so eager. But hearing some stories afterward made me wish I could've been in two places at once! As it happens, my parents, sister, niece and her friend, and Hadassah were all eating supper together, waiting for the news. When I texted my sister, she read aloud to everyone that "she's here!" and apparently Hadassah made a beeline for the door and was out in the hallway before anyone could blink an eye.
That's my girl! So excited about her sister. Loving her long before she even met her. And, two months later, she's still loving her with all her might. We are so blessed to see it! Check her out:
This time around she was a stinker! She is a very, very smiley baby. But she refused to crack a grin for both attempts. The shot above was the closet I got! That's ok, though. She's rather cute, regardless.
What's happened this month?
>> She's packed on a couple of pounds! 12 lbs 2 oz at her last app't.
>> This has been the month of the eyelashes. They've grown and are lovely and long.
>> Bubbles. She blows them. A lot! Along with some drool...
>> She does this absolutely adorable thing where she snuggles her nose and face into my shoulder when I'm holding her. Like she's trying to burrow in and get cozy. Oh, I melt.
>> The kid is practically sitting up on her own! She is so strong.
>> She's made new friends. The toys that hangs off of her car seat handle. They chat. Mostly one sided, but cute.
It's exciting watching her grow and noticing her notice the world around her. Can't wait to see what's next...
