(yes we realize that her pj's are backwards, needed measures.)"][/caption] Her eyes are incredibly alive with life as she gazes out of their blue, blue depths. A slight change in their shape have a way of telling us what is coming next before she moves or speak; a slight upward slant indicates that she is up to mischief in her little mind or perfect roundness glimmering with tears showing hurt feelings.
She has fully developed in her ability to tease, especially the older sister, and loves to grab and run. But, with heart is too gentle to carry on for long so most often, the next response is to stop and return whatever was taken.She completely knows that others find her funny and so makes sure not to disappoint by saying funny things or clowning around.
Speaking of gentle, Cecily already shows such concern for others. She will do what she can to sooth away any tears that she sees, whether from Aneliese, her little friend Gretta, or even her mama. If given anything, she always wants to share it with "An-Yease" or make certain that she has hers as well. She is also so eager to help and to please. Yet, she seems to be developing a strong sense of justice early on in life in that she holds her ground. Cecily will give up almost anything if asked well but will not allow things to be taken from her. She clearly expects to be treated kindly.
These past two years have flown by with our little Cecily Jane...she lives up to her name by bring music to our lives! We are incredibly blessed by her little presence and I am excited to watch and encourage her as she walks through life; or perhaps rather as she dances.
Some pictures from Cecily's day:
