My Peanut, My Monkey

This little girl has been driven physically from birth.  She is always pushing herself to the limit, climbing, jumping, running . . .  Now she has decided to apply herself to communicating :)  Three weeks ago she pretty much just said daddy and now she is adding a few words a day.  I love this stage.  Everyday I am amazed by how she changes, what she says, and what she understands.
She is 14 months old.


Some of her news words . .
Cracker
Juice
Water
don't touch (this one is accompanied by a wagging finger)
Diaper
nigh nigh
moooo ( this is what she calls her stuffed cow )
baby
cheese
eyes
hair
thank you
please . . . .

She also says her siblings names, though if I ask her where her belly is, she finds Bailey.





I was putting her to bed last night and staring down at her and I was struck by what an awesome privilege it is that I get to spend each day with her.  What a privilege that I get to raise my children and wake up each morning to them!  I wish I always remembered that. 

God, Thank you for the privilege of getting to spend each day with my children!
