Worth the wait!


Zany Janie has helped the Zany family work on patience from conception. From the beginning we suspected we were pregnant with her, but had a false negative pregnancy test. So we waited...A month later we took another test, which was positive. We were given a due date and were even told by the MD that Baby Zany would be born two weeks early! The actual estimated due date came and went and we waited...And a little over a week later we had to go in for an induction. Zany Janie would not sit without support for weeks, when we tried to make her sit on her own she would cry and fall over. So we waited...And one day she decided she was ready to sit and sat for 5 minutes on her own without any support. Zany Janie did a commando crawl for months and we eagerly waited for her to crawl...After giving up hope that she would actually pop up and start crawling before she walked, she finally did it! Then we got to the walking stage. She would cruise around furniture, but would not walk on her own. By this time Zany Janie had helped us so much with working on our patience that we sat back and waited...Finally, at 13 months she started walking on her own! Now my precious baby girl is 14 months and I'm proud to say that after waiting 14 months she has finally decided to let me put her hair up in clips and pig tails! So thank you Zany Janie for helping the family work on their patience! You are definitely worth the wait!!!

Zany thought of the day: When you are feeling impatient don't ask "Why is this happening to me?", but rather "What am I learning from it?"

What a wonderful perspective...I need to ask that question a lot more often - I'm far too easily frustrated! :)

What a doll! :D I can just picture her with a pair of PammyDawn clippies in her new piggies... lol Love your words of wisdom - patience is definitely a virtue, one we don't appreciate in this world of instant everything. :)
