We’ve quickly rounded into 20 months of life. And Little One’s personality has really started to shine.
Often, it feels as if I’ve been given a second childhood. I get to watch myself grow up. I get to raise myself (oh joy!) and I get to rediscover things about myself through mature eyes. Mostly because she and I have eerily similar personalities (so far, at least)
She is, afterall, our first-born and that alone gives her and I a huge thing in common. One of the many things we share.
When I took the following video of her, I loved it for two reasons. One, because it is so her. Being the eldest often comes with a longing to do bigger things and have more responsibility. I, myself, was no exception to that and so I secretly love/fear that trait in one of my own. She loves to copy in vivid detail the things she sees grown-ups doing. Never mind that her end result may be a little flawed 🙂
And two, this video showcases a little piece of MG and Daddy’s relationship. A relationship that has really taken off since he has been ever-present in the last six weeks. She has gone from being a fierce Mama’s girl to it-depends-on-the-day-girl. I secretly love/fear that too. Just as long as she doesn’t completely edge me out, I think I can handle it. Right?
