“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

Learning Parts

While she's in the bathtub, I quiz Leah on the parts of the body. So far she knows two: her nose and her belly button. She can identify each accurately 50% of the time. (Then, she always looks for the belly button outside of the bath and is so frustrated that she can't find it anymore.)

This week we'll focus on learning toes and ears. Although she doesn't yet identify her eyes, she does try to mimic us when we wink at her. Her attemps always result in very deliberate blinking, but always symmetrical. It's really cute, becuase she really is trying!

Leah you look so adorable sleeping! You know when your cousin Jessica was little she did the same thing with her hair and by the time she was done it was in knots. Funny thing is even now, at 26 she still does it when she gets tired. Love ya.
