Sophie and I were playing out in the yard today, pretending to be flamingos looking for shrimp to eat so our feathers would turn pink. Although it can be exhausting, I love how she comes up with these imaginary games... I'm blown away by how she takes the new information she's learned and reinforces it through play. At one point in our game she grabbed this small bunch of flowers from the bush in front of our porch and brought them to me saying "I love you mommy flamingo!", and she rested her head on my shoulder.
Awe, there really are just no words to say... no way to explain to her how much I love my "baby flamingo", as a human or any of the other forms she takes!
