Eva has reached the age where she now loves to play. She loves to play with toys, with books, and mostly, she loves to play with people. In particular, she loves to play with her Daddy! She knows him. She knows she loves him. She knows he loves her. As soon as he walks in the door from work, he walks over to her in her bouncy seat or jumperoo (where she normally chills while I make dinner), says “Hello Donkey” and she almost always coughs in his face and then laughs. She has already figured out that Daddy thinks it’s funny to hear those fake coughs – it’s not like he encourages it or anything. ;)
It’s so so so fun for me to watch their unique, playful relationship develop so quickly. Already, she has figured out that Daddy is her best and most amusing playmate. We have different roles when it comes to parenting – I just can’t seem the play the way he does.

I have watched this video a billion and two times already since I snapped it last night, and it’s still making me smile every time.
