BetsyShow

Six and seven months is a darling age. The world is so exciting -- so full of adventure. The babbling, the smiles, the happily exploring any floor she's left on. I just can't get enough of it.

My favorite thing right now is how social Betsy is. Absolutely social. When I take her on errands with me, she's thrilled to see new things and watch. But the minute she sees someone get very close to her, she starts putting on BetsyShow. It starts with smiles in the person's general direction. Nine times out of ten, she has them in the palm of her hand instantly. But occasionally, her subject will be busy looking through their purse, or reading a magazine, or what have you. Then, she pumps it up to level two: the smiles, the eye contact, plus the baby babbles. No one can resist. At least, I haven't met anyone yet.

Darling! I hope to witness the Bestyshow soon. And is it any wonder that she's a social little girl? Look at her mother, who I know loved to put on a good show as well (in the best way)

sounds a lot like her daddy! He always had everyone in the palm of his hand--and probably still does. I love that picture. She is just so cute! I want some BetsyShow too!
