My 11 month old Lilah and I walked down our busy street. She sitting on my hip, embraced in a lime green sling, accented with yellow and blue paisley. The sun shone down on us. She wore a smile so broad. She sang and chatted as we went. And to each passing person her eyes brightened, her face shone, and she rose her hand in greeting. She uttered the latest word she has learned. "hi!"
To welcome strangers like this...a wonderful lesson from my baby.
