This Little Lady

This Little Lady May 21, 2012

I snapped this pic after she rolled for the first time.

Josie is already 4 and a half months old and just started rolling from her back to her belly.  She’s very generous with her smiles, sleeps like a champ, and rarely cries.  Last week, Gianna put her down in the corner of our playroom, where she gradually just fell asleep.  Twenty minutes later, I couldn’t find her!  After a brief moment of panic, I spotted her lying, sound asleep, behind a dump truck, in the corner of our playroom.

After two fussy babies (not naming names here, but we all know who they are), I’d forgotten how seamlessly a low maintenance baby transitions into the family.  My time with her is really all joy.  She refills my cup and then I can somehow deal with the intense drama of my two toddlers.  I emerge from her smiles with a spring in my step, ready to clean up spilled juice, discipline a screaming child, or deal with a potty training accident.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts because right now, I honestly can’t imagine my sweet Josie ever doing anything wrong…

This face is what awaits me in the morning.

And yes, I actually took these pictures myself, which is why the top one is a little blurry. But at least I captured the moment.

I hope your week is off to a blessed start!
