Anyway, this was too great to pass up and I'm trying to use this blog to keep up with Layla's latest and greatest antics. SO...here goes.
Layla received TONS of babies for Christmas. I have honestly never seen a child love on babies as much as she does. They each get special treatment...each gets pushed in a stroller, burped, new diapers, and dinner. Some get their hair brushed and some have their nummies (ie-pacis) during nap time. Though each baby is different, they are all baby dolls...baby dolls whose clothes have been neatly removed so they all have the same little white bodies. Tonight as I took Layla upstairs to put on PJs and read her books, I realized that all but two of her babies were downstairs. She really should be fine with two babies..there was no need to worry about the other three, right? Not so much. She first asked for Baby Sasha...as I was halfway down the steps I heard her yell, "two babies mommy...TWO BABIES". So I grabbed the second baby. I handed them two her...she inspected each.
I knew what she was looking for..she was missing just one baby. Maybe she'd be fine. She looked them all over and glanced up at me. She asked for Baby Zoe. I picked up one baby, thinking it was Baby Zoe...they had the same mouth, I thought. She said, "no mommy...need Baby Zoe...sleepy". I assumed at that point she was afraid Baby Zoe was sleepy and didn't have a crib. Sooooooo I ran downstairs, grabbed the last baby and she was right...it WAS baby Zoe.
Layla tucked each one in their crib...gave them all kisses...folded her hands and said, "thank you Lord...amen". Smiled at her sleeping babies and walked over to me.
I guess a mommy knows her babies..all five of them. And she was not willing to rest until each baby was safe in her crib. So sweet!
