Lilly has been such a wonderful baby this week! So much fun to be around. It’s been good to be her mom the past few days. We’ve gotten so many smiles and little giggles and talking and shrieking. Amazing. She’s also started leaning her head on our shoulders which is so sweet. I’m not sure that she means it to be a sign of affection, but I’m definitely enjoying interpreting it as one. It’s her third best trick – after smiles and giggles, of course.
I took advantage of the relatively warm (50s!) fall weather we’ve been having lately to have a little photoshoot with my girl! We’ve been seeing a lot of this little tongue lately, and for whatever reason, she especially enjoys licking the zipper on her fuzzy little jacket. (You’ll recall seeing the tongue-on-zipper action in my pumpkin patch post, too!)
She’s also developing her putting-things-in-her-mouth skills. Handful of leaves? Yum! (And here’s where I begin to worry about arsenic and other toxins in baby toys.)
Jason captured this photo of the whole ordeal with his iphone. (And then he posted to Facebook, teasing that Lilly’s gonna be talking to her therapist about this in a few years… such a comedian.) It’s kind of fun to see what things look like from his angle.
And then, I handed the good camera over to J and asked him to take some pictures of Lilly & I. I figured that, for future therapy’s sake, I should show her that I wasn’t subjecting her to anything I wouldn’t do. So I laid in the leaves with her and Jason took a few pictures of his girls.
I’m hoping this baby’s superhappysmiley streak continues. It is just so. much. fun.
