The Little Observer by Bethany Deschamp

i am always amazed with how curious our little one year old is.  there is something so beautiful about watching a child explore and look at things with such wonderment in their eyes.  my husband always asks me, “aren’t you always so curious about what she is thinking?”  yes.  all the time.  of all the things i love about her, the little observer in her is my most favorite.

the other night on her birthday, we rewatched her birth after putting her to bed.  yes, nostalgic.  and while we have watched these videos millions of times throughout her first year, this time we were really focusing on noting her personality in those first few minutes after she was born.  the first thing we noticed…she was immediately observant.  sure, she cried for a minute after being born.  i mean, being yanked out by your feet into a colder room is a little shocking.  but the moment she was swaddled, she was immediately quite and looking around the room with wide eyes.  silent and observant.  and her knack for observation has been a huge part of her personality throughout her first year.

at a year old, i love that she sits patiently in her highchair while i prepare her dinner or prepare our dinner.  most of the time she throws cheerios at the dog, but other times she just looks around and takes it all in.  on this particular day, she was infatuated with looking out the window.  i am not sure if it was the squirrels scurrying up and down the trees or the new spring green leaves that were catching her eye, but i love everything about her curiosity and am so glad i was able to capture it within a photo.
