Lorelei

Yesterday Lorelei talked the biggest part of the day....definitely noticed a change in the amount she jabbered. And even though she has been reaching and getting things, I noticed her early in the day really checking her own hands out. It was so funny---she was holding them up in front of her face and moving them around, more her left hand than her right....but her eyes would just get so big.

But the fun thing I have to tell about is when Sarah was about ready to leave with her, she wanted to change her diaper for the ride home. She laid her down and started talking to her; remember Lorelei loves to go have her diaper changed. She will almost always smile and jabber to me.

Sarah started saying 'Jujitsu' and 'Karate' to her and one or two other words...and she had a big smile on her face when she said them, and would do little motions with her hands. Every time she said them, Lorelei laughed out loud...kind of a belly laugh-giggle. Over and over! Her mom and I had tears from laughing so hard at her.

Oh what a cutie pie, Rose. I laugh outloud when I hear babies laugh--especially that belly laugh. She surely is a happy little girl. You are so lucky to have her.
Hugs,
Betsy

A wonderful picture of this precious youngster! The description of your experience of her checking out her hands is fascinating. It's such a good thing that you can be involved in her life on such a regular basis so you'll see the changes as they occur. Nice post.

Such a cute story, Rose. How lucky she is that both her mommy and granny get such a great kick out of her. ;-)

There's nothing like being a Grandma - I would never have believed the amount of joy and love one could feel.
I so miss my two girls.
You are so blessed Rose.
Look at those chubby little thighs - she's growing like a weed compared with the shot in your sidebar.

You certainly have a happy (and beautiful) granddaughter. You're very fortunate to be able to be with her so often at this age.

She is adorable!

I love to watch the little ones when they start discovering things we take for granted.

She's pretty sweet, Rose. Ain't it fun being a grandma?

She is growing right in front of us. So nice that you get to keep her so much. Time well spent, and will have such memories for both of you. Mason comes every Wed, and we have such a good time.
