Family Day

Yesterday The other day was Family Day here in Israel. And while we didn't do anything special, I was very excited about it. I would rather if it had been Mother's Day like it had been in the past, but still, a day to stop and look at my little family. My little family.
Daily I look at her and am at awe. Can't believe how lucky I am to have her in my life. Am thinking a lot if I will be able to have a sibling for her or not (always wanted more than one child. On that note I'll mention what a fool I was when I was young, saying I'd rather have no children than an only child..). And I probably do quite a lot of ranting about her on my blog, but I totally think she is such an amazing little girl. And I do think a lot about you guys (or should I say gals) who are not mothers yet. I just hope you get to celebrate Family Day or Mother's Day very soon.

Will finish with this funny moment - we (sisters and I) were sitting for a meal with her on my laps. What was said was said and I got quite angry, so I answer back in an angry tone. All of a sudden a little hand comes bashing into the food on my plate, mirroring of course my anger. It was so funny, but also a reminder to be more conscious of what and how I do because there are these little eyes that are watching me the whole time and learning from me.

Yes I know all about being careful about what you say. My little one mimics my phone calls, and she has learned a few new words I would rather she had not yet learned.

Wow look at her, she's standing already, Sydnee cant even do that yet and she has a truck load of hair. So adorable!!! I definitely agree about watching what you say, because very soon she'll probably be saying it. Sydnee likes to mimic a lot, not words yet... she's still stuck on dada.

Happy Family Day!
How cute is your Girl!?!
I think as I get older I notice that children really take to the tone in your voice and your actions along with the words we say ;)
