Dave has been out of town for a few days, and I’m very happy with how Lila is doing. She got to “talk” to him on the phone a few times and she lit up with a big ol’ smile each time. Last night, Dave asked her if she liked her new Angry Birds, and she immediately ran off to collect them all. It was adorable.
Well, last night I was carrying Lila and when we passed Dave’s senior picture hanging on the wall, she pointed and got a big ol’ smile. I asked her if that was Daddy and she squealed with delight and kept pointing. Then she said “daddy”. It was so precious.
What I find interesting is that Lila has only known Dave with a beard, yet completely recognized the beardless 17 year old on the wall as Daddy. Pretty cool, no?
