Twirly girl

We had an awesome day together today. We went to church and hung out with friends. It was so cute when I went to get Alayah from the nursery....she saw we and yelled "hi" and then the lady asked her if she wanted to go out the door and Alayah said "yes". It was so cool to see her able to understand a question and use the right word. I ran by the park after church and shot a couple of really cute shots of her. I tried to go yesterday, but she was too afraid...I think of the wind...I'm not quite sure what she was scared of, but she wouldn't let me put her down so it didn't go so well. Today was such a "normal" day and I really enjoyed it.
If I had to choose two pictures to describe my daughter it would be these two. Her onry fiesty side and her happy fun-loving side. These moments are what gives me glimpses into who she will become.

Not here by Chance

Your daughter is here not by chance, but by God’s choosing. His hand formed her and made her the person she is. He compares her to one else – she is one of a kind. She will lack nothing that His grace can’t give her. He has allowed her to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.

All things Red

Alayah seems to like all things red. Her new found love is nectarines. She has always loved tomatoes and tomato sauce. A girl after my own heart. :) She even eats red bell peppers and salsa and she also likes strawberries and watermelon. She loves the salsa at on the border. The other night she insisted upon eating the salsa with a spoon. It was too hot for her and she kept gagging, but would scream if i tried to take it away. No pain no gain I guess. She seems to be very picky about other things, but she is wide open when it comes to red food.

Ever since our New Mexico trip, Alayah seems to be exploding with language. Her words aren't clear, but they certainly sound like real words. For example, she definitely has figured out the word "NO" always said with emphasis or in a high pitched scream. She also says "Oh No" often said after she purposefully drops something or throws something. If I ask her where something is she will say a blurb of sounds that sounds like "I don't know", but the words are all mushed together so I'm not totally sure of what she is saying. She defintiely is saying Mommy more in reference to me so that is awesome. I can't wait to have a conversation with her...I can't wait to see what is going on in her little mind.

First popsicle of the summer

I gave Alayah a popsicle today to see what she thought. Nothing like a cold popsicle on a hot day. She seemed to enjoy it, but it melted before she could eat it all.
