I love my little girl. Today she has been cranky and tired, but nothing an early nap won’t help.
She usually has skinned knees. She’s sort of clumsy sometimes.
But she’s also learning how to jump. She can get both feet off the ground. She may even have a half-inch vertical, though that could be an exaggeration.
She also likes to draw. I was particularly impressed with this drawing:
And I am very grateful for all of my family who talk to her on the phone. I know it’s not easy talking to her, since sometimes she doesn’t talk back at all, but she really enjoys your conversations.
Charcoal is a good substitute for sidewalk chalk, by the way. And when you have a pile of burnt sticks in your yard, it’s free.
She sticks her tongue out a lot. Maybe it helps her balance.
One last thing. This is a picture of me when I was about the same age as MM:
And here is a picture of Dillon, her daddy:
It is so awesome to have kids.
