A few weeks back we took an afternoon and went out to the farm to visit my brother, sister-in-law and their new lambs, Addilyn and Lilly Jo. I was really hoping to get a few cute pics with Novia and the lambs for Easter, but it was not to be. I’m learning that my daughter needs time in new situations to warm up whether to people, places or animals. It was rather funny how adamantly opposed she was to petting the lambs while we held them near her. Novia is certainly independent and the harder we push her into something, the harder she pulls back. I see myself in her and knowing how I was as a child helps me see things through her eyes. If given the opportunity to self-adjust, she remains happy and pleasant, but if we push her into a situation, she will generally respond in sin.

There are, however, plenty of times when we don’t allow her to “warm up” to an idea. Obedience is expected immediately, although I confess we’re still working on consistency with that. =) Anyway, Novia finally warmed up to the lambs by walking past them and giving them a quick pet. Each time she did it the pet would be a little longer. Ultimately I don’t know what she enjoyed more, being outside with the lambs…

It was fun to have my little girl enjoying the farm where I grew up and learned so much about life.
