Who gives me a wide smile when I walk in the door after a long day warping young minds? Who reaches for me in a way she would not have done but three weeks ago? Who laughs and giggles when I lift her up and twirl her around? Who leaned her head on my chest yesterday, melting my heart? Who follows me around the house, leaving her mother alone? Who, once she crawls within reach of me, raises her hands up for me to grab her? Who smiles at me when I come in and grab her in the morning? Who steals my heart each and every day?
It's this little girl.
And she is growing and becoming our daughter day by day. She is picking up some weight and opening up! She is beautiful!
I taught HS History today! After the past week experiencing poor luck with elementary kids, it was an absolute godsend to teach History today. The movie for a couple of the classes ran short so, rather then letting them yak, I gave them a short lesson on how China is a third world country striving for first world status. I also told a bunch of stories about their driving and the food. I might also have bragged about my daughter a little bit. It was a good day!
