You slept over Zio and Titi's house for your cousin's 4th birthday. I thought, given past issues, that you might have some separation anxiety? Nope. When I saw you this morning I had to call you over to get a hug. I guess that's progress, but it sucks for me.

1. Yesterday you woke me up by yelling "Boo!" I got mad and said, "Why did you do that??" You said, "Because it's Halloween," which is a totally valid argument. You then snuck over to scare Daddy, who was awake and you couldn't scare. When you realized this you got in his face said, "It'll happen, it'll happen."

2. About a month ago you were in the hallway and you caught me and Daddy kissing in bed - yes, just kissing. You said outloud, "Well that's an image I'm never gonna be able to get rid of."

You love to sing in the shower. We can hear you from downstairs, though you're really not loud. It's just pure, simple joy.

Sometimes I get glimpses of you not as a little girl, and it makes my heart ache.

Me: "Did your friends miss you while you were out yesterday?"

You: "I guess."

Me: "You said your friends were going to miss you."

You: "I said they were going to ask where I was."

Me: "And where did you say you were?"

You: "In the United States of Nunya."

...pause...

You: "I am so your daughter."

About six weeks ago, you and I were snuggling and I leaned down to you and said, "I love you so much". And you looked up at me and said, "I wish I could say the same."

Last night you were playing a board game with your cousins and when it was Uncle Paul's turn you said, "Ok big boy, your turn."

Today you called me and complained that "the babysitter" wasn't helping you with your homework.

Your babysitter is your brother.
