Pretty

Waverly has a new favorite word.  Pretty.  In the midst of watching her lose words & skills, it is such a gift to have her learn a new word.  Within the past week she has been saying "pretty" constantly.  Usually, she and I are snuggling and I look right in her eyes.  I love telling her how pretty she is and she caught on.  She giggles after she and I both say it.  It is beautiful.

YAY!! And what a great word for her. She is so very pretty and I am sure you are thrilled that she is saying it. No matter what the circumstances, it is small moments like giggling with your daughter that makes life worth living. What a great way to start 2009! :)

Pretty much poetry.

I have a daughter who also loves to say the word 'pretty', but it comes out 'piddy'. It's one of my favorite things to hear. I'm happy for you that your able to experience that with your beautiful daughter, too. God bless you all this year.

Praying for more of those moments and aspiring to be as intentionally loving a mom as you are. It's perfect.
