“no want be big girl. want be baby girl.” yes, sweet girl, you will always be my baby girl.
“mama/dada need me.” well, i’m guessing that you need us to do something, but we do indeed need you. more than you know.
“pick. me. up.” with more joy than you know.
“one more? two more?” oh, when you cock your head to the side… sigh.
“five more minutes.” we said that five minutes ago.
“iruhroo. ruroo.” baby girl, i love you too.
