Lilah's BFF, on the other hand, is totally fearless when it comes to animals. They say opposites attract!
Eventually, Lilah did allow her feet to touch the ground, but she still preferred to observe from afar.
We were concerned that the Hubs and I were going to be the only ones making use of the bird seed we bought specifically for Lilah.
And then, just as we were about to leave the farm, this happened:
Which had me running back to the little store to purchase more birdseed for the girls, since we were almost out by that point.
I ofen find myself sitting back and marveling at the little personality that is emerging right before my eyes, and these types of outings tend to highlight her developing traits. Some of it is nurture, yes, but I attribute much of it at this early stage to nature. I see a lot of myself in Lilah, so it really shouldn't come as any surprise to me that, like me, she can be quite shy and a little slow-to-warm-up.
What do outings like this tell you about your own family members's personalities? Do you think kids' personalities can change throughout their childhood, or do the core traits stay the same? Please share your thoughts in the comments!
