Chit-Chatting About Elisabeth

Let's talk about Elisabeth, shall we?

First of all, after getting jammies on her yesterday, I sat her up and put her favorite toy in front of her. I expected her to fall over as soon as I let go - since that is what always happens as of late - but she didn't! In fact, she sat up and played for a solid ten minutes! I couldn't believe it!!

And then...down she went:

But, hey, I'm not complaining. That was the longest I have seen her sit in months!


Backing up a few days...

Elisabeth was asleep in her beanbag. She looked like a slumbering angel. I actually stopped what I was doing so I could sit and watch her sleep. 

Then, all of the sudden, her eyes opened, and she smiled. Elisabeth didn't know I was there (as I was being very quiet and she can't see past the end of her nose), so her smile wasn't at me. Perhaps she had a sweet dream? Whatever the reason, it melted my heart.

[The brief smile. In an instant, she was back to sleep.] 

Not a day goes by that I don't wonder if it'll be the day I lose Elisabeth. Each time she seizes I think, Is this the one? The one that will take her from me? I know that might sound sad, or gruesome, but it's not meant to be, it is just reality.

I appreciate every day with her - every single moment. And I feel privileged to be the mother of such a perfect and pure human being. 

Oh, how I love my Elisabeth.

[Elisabeth and me. I love that we have matching eye color.]
