|Louisa’s “cheese” face. America’s Next Top Model, get ready!|
Those who know me, know I am a very proud aunt. Living in DC, I’m fortunate to get to spend lots of quality time with my sister’s baby, Lousia, affectionately known as “Lulu Bug”. This is not her first debut on Long To Love. You can read more about her here and here.
Since then, she acquired many new tricks. Among them, twirling, dancing, and singing on command as well as pointing to the top corner of someone’s head and saying “bow”…I have trained her well! She also eagerly refers to her favorite Aunt and Uncle as “Liddabet” and “Bubba”. (Did you ever think Bernie would be a Bubba?)
One of her more astounding tricks that she has embraced since she was a wee one is her fondness for lemons. She can’t get enough of them. Over this past weekend, I tried to capture it on video. This may be one of those instances where only the aunt thinks it’s cute, but hopefully this gives you an idea.

She can never decide if she fully likes it, but she always goes back for more. I’m still not exactly sure why, but for some reason, her love for the lemon reminds me of the Proverbs that says,
“Bittersweet is the practice of believing that we really do need the bitter and the sweet. Sweet is nice enough, but bittersweet is beautiful, nuanced, full of depth and complexity. It’s courageous, gutsy, audacious, earthy.” – Shauna Niequist
