Lovable Sweetie

Yesterday I hung out with Bryan’s precocious four year old niece. I love how children are unedited.  What a doll this child is. Together we created the above cartoon character on the computer paint program. She chose all the clothes and colors to her liking.  Everything was specific, the words on her shirt, the same striped socks she was wearing, down to her favorite tone of pink. Which she noted was slightly different than what she was wearing but exactly how she liked it. She wanted a round face like the angels on my wall, with dark hair, she's a natural blond.  Every time I did something to her agreement, she’d drag out the word P---E---RRRR—FECT in her exuberant voice.

She played delicately on our piano, it sounded lovely unlike most children who bang on it!    Like her uncle  she tends to put  intonations on different syllables than the average person. When she speaks it’s melodic and happy. She seems excited about every tiny thing she learns. Observant in every way she’s an interested remarkable little girl. Today I found my self mimicking    P---E---RRRR—FECT with the same inflection   she uses. This bright little spirit is a born leader. Can’t wait to see what kind of disease she cures, or sonata she writes, or building she constructs.One thing I know for sure,  this kid is special and will go far…did I mention she’s super lovable too!! Who says babies can’t teach you things!!!
