I just want to think today about the look on my little girls face when she is playing and acting silly. She is just shy of one, and acts like she is going on five. She plays with her tongue half way out of her mouth. This is convenient, because she can easily coo and spit a little if something excites her.
Today I came to the sitters early to pick her up. She just kept on playing and smiling, as if she had something mischievous going through her mind. She did not stop playing to come into my arms, until the normal pick-up time. That little goof is on a schedule. I should have known.
It makes me so happy to watch my babies emerge as their very own people.
