I have an 8 1/2 month old beautiful girl. Her name is Danielle, and she has made my life so very different, in many positive ways, not one negative!
She has taught me so much even though she can’t speak herself yet. Her actions speak for her.
I have heard ‘Actions speak louder than words’ many times throughout my life so far (all 29 of them) and I now know just how true it is.
Danielle can’t speak to me (yet) she can’t tell me how she is feeling, but I understand her by her actions.
The way she stares at her hands, I know that’s when she has dog fur, fluff, hair or something on her fingers.
The way she licks her chops after dinner I know she is satisfied and happy without being able to say ‘yum’ or ‘thank you for tea that was delicious.’
The way she looks at me when she is ready for a nap, her null look on her face says it all! She doesn’t have to say ‘I am tired’, she doesn’t even have to yarn!
The way she looks at me when I sit down and do nothing for even a few seconds, she makes me aware she is bored and wants to do something without even whining or saying ‘Mum, I am bored!’
I never thought it could be so easy to read someone, but having Danielle has made me understand how easy it actually is, as long as you have the time and ability to stop, observe, take it in, process and understand it.
I can’t wait until she is talking but at the moment I am happy playing charades.
I love my life. <3
