Sophie is looking at me from the floor. She's laying on her nap mat for quiet time. I hold up my hand in the "I love you" sign and say "I love you, Sophie!" She studies my hand and then looks at her hand. She pushes and pulls her fingers in different ways.
Then she holds her hand up to me, middle finger sticking proudly in the air, and says "I love you, Mama!"
Thank you, darling.
