This little angel was NO sleeper. She didn’t want to miss anything! Her older sister, Genevieve, was a super alert baby too but Cecilia nearly bested me. Note I said “nearly”. LOL.
I have to share a funny story about older sister Genevieve because I started giggling all over every time I think about it. G has been amazing me with her intelligence since she was born. She is about 16 months younger than my son Troy and she has been out communicating him from the get go. She can talk circles around my boy! She is incredibly articulate for a 2 year old. During the session, she helped herself to a headband that I was planning to use on Cecilia. Her daddy tried to recapture it and Genevieve didn’t want to give it up. Of course she didn’t. Again…she is two.
While I am working to get Miss C to sleep, I hear G say this to her dad (pertaining to the headband):
“Do you understand how important this is to me?”
I am surprised I didn’t wake up baby sister with my belly laugh at that. In another two years, the dialogue between these two sisters is going to be downright hysterical. Mama, M will be keeping me entertained with her facebook kid quotes for some time to come I am confident.
Awwww…we did manage to get one sleepy smile out of “Not So Sleepy Beauty”. Love this little one.
