This morning while I was making her egg, I gave her a banana. I haven’t done this in a while since Mom mostly feeds her breakfast and before I couldn’t get her to eat them. But this morning I learned that likes bananas (just like Nana said). I couldn’t help but watch her as she investigated the banana. It was so sweet and innocent. This is one thing about children that I love… they make you look at ordinary things in extraordinary ways. I remember being enthralled with Sara as a baby even as far as just watching her sleep or looking for what seems hours at the the swirls of hair on the crown of her head. I guess it’s been awhile. I have to say it’s a nice place to be to stop and take time to enjoy even the smallest things about Lexi. I know I’m 27 years older since Sara was born but somehow I think having Lexi at this age is awesome. I have so many more life experiences to pull from and I’m a more confident mother this time. While some people laugh and think I’m nuts for beginning all over again (essentially having 2 only children), I truly believe this was God’s path for me. So as I pondered these things this morning watching her with the banana… I did like I usually do and grabbed the camera!
