Eating feet

Ayla discovered her feet weeks ago, but today she started eating them.

Argh – So cute!! I love my Baby Ayla so much and to watch her learn about the world is just the best thing ever.

Lately Ayla’s learned or done
something new every day and its just so exciting; she’s literally growing in front of my eyes.

I’m so lucky to have this time with Ayla and I’m grateful that I live in a country where I can enjoy special moments like this without worrying about things that shouldn’t matter, like money.

I know staying at home with a baby doesn’t work for everyone, but for me it’s one of the most special times in my life.

Every morning I wake up excited to find out a little bit more about who my Baby Ayla is as a person, and I relish her little discoveries like this one today.

It is so exciting to watch as Ayla grows stronger and smarter every day.

There’s times when I can literally SEE her thinking, and I’d give anything to know what’s going on inside her head.

And then there’s the times where she surprises herself, as well as me, with how strong she has become.

Just today she was able to lift her head and push her body up from lying flat on her belly, and she purposefully reached out and grabbed a stuffed toy dog by its ear with one hand and its nose with the other.

It made me realise how much I’m missing Hubby, and how much I wish he wasn’t missing these tiny little developments.

Thank goodness for iPhones.
