In the past I have posted some of our favorite Abigailisms.  While Shilo doesn't do much outside of sleeping, eating, and staring at me while I try relentlessly to get her to smile, she does have one thing that we have noticed that makes us crack up.  Every. Time.
We couldn't hold Shilo for the first week because she had an umbilical i.v. and two arterial lines at different points.  So Jason and I would sit next to her bedside and rub her head, play with her hair, and talk softly to her.  Apparently it was comforting for her.  She can be in the middle of  crying.  Rocking doesn't seem to help, or patting, but rub her head, and well, here's what happens....

We love our sweet little peanut.


  1. that is the sweetest thing I have ever seen..... :)

  2. She is such a sweet little peanut. Love her.

  3. Ok, that's seriously one of the cutest video's I have ever seen! She is such a little doll! Does she have red hair??

  4. i think my heart just melted completely on the floor. :) just wanted to share my blog with you because yours is such an encouragement to me. my little lucia was born on 11.11.10 and has been diagnosed with mitochondrial disease.
