so here is a very short story that very clearly illustrates the wonder of life with my toddler:
this morning, jude learned to play the kazoo. and then she signed a perfect ‘i love you’ for the first time while nursing. i asked her if she was happy, and she giggled crazily. this afternoon, she tasted her first mcnugget. she danced around in backwards circles, shrieking with joy, half-eaten nugget in hand.
i am in love.
