7 months of having Baby Girl in our lives has been one epic adventure. Each month she’s learning something new and her personality is shining bright.
The latest aspect of her personality that is starting to pop through is her giggling and full-out belly laughing at me, David, and the most random, horribly timed things.
For instance, we were reading her the story of how God sent the plagues to Egypt so that Pharaoh would let His people go. The most inopportune time- the moment where David reads, “and then God sent the worst plague of all and Pharaoh’s firstborn son died,” Baby Girl busts out laughing. I can only wonder what she thought was so hilarious.
Or those times when David and I are having a serious conversation and she just keeps smiling and laughing at her daddy. Baby Girl, he’s trying to be serious…stop making him smile.
The joy she brings to our home is amazing. I’m so thankful for her life and for her bubbly personality. I sometimes think about how I can’t wait for her to talk, walk, or do the next big thing. I just want to dwell is this present phase, soak up the smiles and the laughter, and enjoy each day.
Her joy challenges me to be a joyful person, to love life, and to be grateful for all that God has blessed me with. It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life, work stress, frustrating people, or whatever.
Let’s be thankful for today.
