A couple of weeks ago when I was still a little sick, I was laying on the bed watching Lil play. She walked up to me with a big duplo block, said “baba” and stuck it in my mouth. Then she said “thirsty” and started rubbing my head. I was watching her and she demanded that I “close eyes”.
This little tender loving scene has played out a number of times over the last couple of weeks. I think this was one of the cutest and sweetest things, but for the longest time I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from.
A couple of days ago I was nursing Lil and she was starting to drift off and I very absent-mindedly started stroking her hair and a light bulb went off: I finally got why she had been rubbing my head! I don’t know how I didn’t see it before but I couldn’t stop smiling after I figured it out.
I love that Kid!
