Stop and look at the trees

Oh the wonder of a child. I heard that a lot as a teacher and did not understand it like I do now. Everything is so new to Reese. In the car I was making her carseat strap move like a snake....but wait...she has never seen a snake! (She did however see her first frog on our back deck yesterday!) Sometimes when I am feeding Reese in the dinner room she just stops and stares. I am thinking, now what....Only to notice that she is enjoying the wind moving the tree leaves out the window. She just stops and stares so peacefully. It serves as a good reminder to me to slow down! :)

A girl and her dog

Reese has started to really watch what we are doing now. She intently watches Seb and all that he does. And so I have a new theory. IF Reese watches Seb obey me, then maybe she will obey me as well. What do you think? :)

Learning to let go

Reese is 8 months old and I know this is only the start of this process of letting go but I find it so hard to take care of someone all the time and really have no control over the out come. Reese's Grandma is visting from Utah and she only wants me to hold her. Why? I don't know. Is she teething? Or sick? Or going through a "stranger danger" phase? Only God knows. I still feel bad that she doesn't warm up to her grandma and feel like I should be able to do something about it. So here is to giving your all and letting go of the out come at the same time.
