When a thousand words just aren’t enough

17 Jan

A couple of days ago I wrote about how I recently discovered that Lauren likes it when I make her bounce on our bed in the morning. Not knowing what tomorrow will hold I made sure to capture the moment today. Mommy did both the bouncing and the filming so please beware that the footage is shaky. πŸ™‚

I have to mention that a couple of months ago Lauren stopped smiling and I feared that I would never see her sweet little lips curl upwards again. She is a true fighter, and a happy little girl. A happy little girl with a dimple, something that mommy and daddy didn’t even know about until a few days ago.

Thank you Lauren for all the joy that you bring to the world

    Thank you so much for sharing. My son also used to laugh and smile when I bounced him on the bed. One of the first signs that something was wrong was that he did not respond to it anymore and after he was diagnosed with krabbes I never tried again. I love Lauren’s smile and I am glad that you were able to capture it. xxoo

    Must feel like being in water, light and weightless movement. Oh how soothing and fun for Lauren. Amanda, when you have inner joy like you do, you can only do one thing and that’s share it. Lauren, thx for sharing that joy! You’ve learned from the best, your loving mom and dad.
    Love Ann and Great Great Aunt Nellie xox
