the agnes chronicles: chapter 5
Our little lady turned seven months old yesterday. How these seven months have flown by! Agnes has become quite the little vocalist. She talks and squeals and giggles and sings. At mass on Sundays, she sings with the choir, she helps the lectors with the readings, and she has lovely conversations with our priest, Fr. Paul, during his homily and at other various parts of the mass. She doesn’t have any specific words as of yet, but she does say “Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mam” when she’s tired or hungry or upset. Karl is still hoping her first word will be daddy… I’m thinking momma is gonna win out.
Agnes has several adorable stages of smiles and half smiles. Sometimes she’ll break out into a huge grin immediately; other times her smile starts slowly and grows into a massive one. And then there are times when she really makes you work for a smile. No matter which one you get, her smiles are the best. Even this week when she is teething, Agnes somehow manages pained but sweet smiles. She saves her best smiles for Karl when she hasn’t seen him after a long day. Those are the smiles that light up her whole face and melt my heart.
I took 7 month/Christmas pictures of Agnes today. Since the Christmas season ended on Sunday, I’m not that late, right? Anyway here are a few of my favorites:
