Shiloh Selah Love
Shiloh is the best little thing on earth. We had a rough start, but we really are falling more and more in love with each other each day...it took 3 years, but Im fully seeing the promise that God made to me when I found out she was a girl unfolding before me at lightening speed. I was so scared to have a little girl. I just don't feel like "girl mom" material. God promised me that the baby in my womb was perfectly hand picked for me....and that baby was going to teach me more than I could ever imagined. I was so scared to be her mom. But here I am, and Shiloh is a great teacher. She is the best little buddy to hang out with. She does everything with me. She talks to me while I do my chores. She helps me with everything!! She is a rockstar at house hold chores. She can vacuum, put dishes away, clean and organize like no ones business...and can almost do laundry from start to finish. She is also the electricity patrol....the other ady she got sent to time out and almost had a panic attack because she didn't turn her light off and electricity was just sitting there wasting away for 3 whole minutes. Its kind of hysterical. She is such a neat freak...like, to a fault...cough, me, cough. She is SO funny. The things that come out of her mouth crack me up. She loves talking in what we like to call a Kardashian accent. "Haaayyyy, Mommmmay....I Laaaveee Yaaaaaou...ohhh kaaaaayyyy." It is SO funny. The other day she said, "Mommy, Im so big now....I don't lick things anymore!!! Just you, and me...and no more licking anything else. That means I'm big." Ahh, I remember the day when I stopped licking things...oh wait...no, no I don't. She has the most wild fashion preferences...I love it. Everyday I look forward to seeing the color and pattern explosion that she puts on. She loves making "set up's"...which is basically taking tons of tiny things (cars, princesses, little people) and setting them up in a doll house or on the floor Everything has a place (in her head) and they are always very strategically and thoughtfully arranged. She loves to dance. She loves cheese and yo-grit (yogurt). She wants to be touched all of the time- hand held, face touched, legs touching when we are sitting. She will let you stare into her eyes and smile lovingly at her for ages. Its precious (and a little awkward haha). She misses her California Gramma every day and talks about playing Barbies with her to almost everyone we see. She loves doing crafts and wrapping fake presents for people. The list goes on of all her funny little quirks and passions. I just love getting to know her...and I love falling deeper in love with her every day.
