yesterday i went to visit my friends who have two girls - 17 months and 4 years. after running around and not letting me catch her and tickle her, the youngest one, Gabi, came over to make friends. after a few really loud sqeels and telling me stories in the language only she can understand, she decided that i am good enough to be friends with. so she crawled up next to me on the couch, put her little arms around me and put her cheek on mine and held on tight to me.
afterwards her daddy told her he loves her, she answered "wuw oooo" for "I love you too".
i think i melted yesterday. i don't think i am back to my solid state yet, i am wearing that feeling of two little arms around me and a smell of baby shampoo in my memory today.
