Baby Toes, Baby Fingers, Baby Tummy

(Scott likes to give Lucy a Mohawk after her bath)

Lucy and I have lots of games we play together that nobody else sees.

We have quiet games. The moment anyone walks in the room the quiet game is over and
Lucy wants to PLAY!

I feel bad that Scott doesn't get to see this quiet, sweet side to Lucy, but that must be the prerogative of mommy's.

One of my favorite games is when she is in bed with me after eating and we are laying next to each other. I'll touch her fingers and say, "baby fingers" or toes, "baby toes," "baby eyes," "baby tummy."

She loves it. She will close her eyes and smile or concentrate really hard on me.

My heart melts a million times over. Or she loves it when I tickle her face. She will reach out and touch mine.

The power of touch to communicate love is pretty cool.

Oh Lindsey she is so darling. I can't imagine a better mommy for such a darling baby than you. The pictures you take are so stunning and I just love hearing about you two!

that is the sweetest thing ever. it's so hard to describe the bond between mother and baby, and those sweet and simple exchanges that take place all day, every day. motherhood really is the most rewarding thing in the world!
