(If you were unsure of Piglet’s gender like I was, Wikipedia will clear it up for you.)
This guy was such a good sport, letting her play with his iphone?! Clearly he is not familiar with a toddler’s propensity for destruction of all things Apple (or all things.).
It’s interesting having such an extrovert for a daughter. When we’re in public and she feels the need to introduce herself to every stranger possible, Nate (also an extrovert) gives me a quick look of understanding before jumping up and following after her. I definitely prefer keeping a low profile and assume most people want to be left alone, but Lucille has a tendency to break down social walls and win over even the grumpiest of strangers. I feel both proud and appalled when these things happen, but vow never to squash her spirit. :)
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and woke today with the least amount of Monday blues possible…
She followed me around the kitchen last night while I was making dinner saying, “wow!” to my every cooking move. I felt so affirmed. :) She also ate a giant bowl of what I made, too, which was certainly affirming as well.
Last weekend we had the privilege of hosting my parents and grandparents for a visit! Well, kind of. They stayed a few blocks away in a nice hotel instead of on air mattresses in our apartment. :) My parents pretty much know the Pasadena ropes by now, but we had so much fun showing my grandparents some favorite parts of our city. It involved a good deal of walking, eating, and playing with Lucille, but they were game for all of it, and it certainly made for some special memories. Thanks for making the trip, Grandpa and Grandma Behr! We love you! :)
Last night I was brushing Lucille’s hair after a bath. She was sitting on her changing table and I was slicking her hairs back into a terrible man-style. I’m pretty sure it was her eyes- so alert at that moment, and expressive and kind- that caused me to become completely overwhelmed by my love for her. I felt the weight of it physically in my chest, if that makes sense, and I looked into her sweet little face and told her I loved her. It was like she knew we were having a moment right then too so she leaned in and kissed me on the mouth. Oh my.
