So tonight we were driving back from dinner at a friend's (paella with rabbit and snails, yes I ate a snail!), and we were taking turns telling Laurel, "I love you."
After a few rounds of that, she responded with "I love you, Daddy." Oh, you should have seen the look on her face when she said it - she was so stinkin' proud of herself - and we were too. That's her first sentence! Oh, we can hardly wait till she starts talking! It is such a heart-melting thing to be parents!
Oh, and two weeks ago she started folding her arms during some prayers. When we we drove up to the church this morning, she immediately folded her arms. Are little almost 16-month ones that observant?? It's a bit disconcerting!
And I brought crayons and blank paper to church today, and she spent the bulk of sacrament meeting coloring - such a big girl! I told my mom today I'm getting a bit baby hungry because I'm more fully realizing how much my baby isn't a baby anymore!
