You have a few new obsessions these days....
Your physical therapist, Bonnie, took note of one of them. She noticed the last time she came that you were completely enthralled with purses...you would rather be digging through a guest's purse, slyly pulling out cell phones and pencils and wallets, than participating in therapy. So two weeks ago, when she came again, she brought you a new purple purse and filled it with goodies from the Dollar Tree: a mirror, a puppy, a plastic cell phone, a ball, and a necklace.
Bonnie made a friend for life that day....
You go everywhere with that purse. You sort through its contents and array them in a neat semi-circle on the floor around you. You carefully place them back in your purse one by one, and quickly slip your arm through the black handle. Baby tucked under one arm, purse flung over the other, you are a girl on-the-go. You proudly walk around the house singing, going from room to room in search of people to show your treasures to. You enter the bathroom where I'm brushing my hair and hold your purse out for me to see. Unsnapping the latch, you pull out an item and tell me all about it.
"Lalalalalalalala," you say, describing whatever you're holding and dropping your baby for a moment to gesture with your other hand. You're just like your mama- you must talk with your hands. When I oooh and ahhhh over each precious item, you place them back in your purse and retrieve your baby from the floor. And off you go again, a little mother on a mission.
Obsession Number two:
You love to try on other people's clothes. If you see a pile in the laundry room, or behind your sister's door, you immediately drape whatever you find over your neck and come out to show us. For the last several months....for some strange reason... you were particularly drawn to...bras and underwear.
I am so glad you switched to your brother's t-shirts.
Obsession number three:
Okay, I admit- this is Mama's obsession. I can't stop taking pictures of you. Even if I took 43 billion the hour before. But I just can't help it, because....
...you are such a little charmer! No wonder I have photos of you from every day of your life. Make that dozens of photos from every day of your life. I am fairly certain I have never taken so many pictures of a child as I have in the last two and a half years.
My name is Patti and I have a Lilybird addiction. I freely admit it.
But can you blame me?
Such cuteness is irresistible !
