September 14, 2007

Today Baby-Bee is 2 1/2. She has become a little girl over the last 6 months. She asks questions, looks for answers, and spends as much time as possible investigating all of mother natures treasures.

Often I get frustrated with her because she becomes so absorbed with looking at, touching (and sometimes eating) all of the outdoor elements (dirt, flowers, leaves, grass, ants, etc) that she doesn't respond to our calls.

Her canned answer when I ask her what she did at school is "played with ants, and other bugs". This response is FAR different then the responses that I have come to expect from her more traditional and conservative sister.

I always need to remind myself that she is a person, and if we allow her to explore her interests, she will only grow in a positive direction. Baby Bee might become a marine biologist, or environmental activist, or forest ranger, and her present explorations are her early foundations.

We are delighted with who she is, look forward to knowing what she will become, and are privileged to have her in our lives.

Baby Bee - we adore you! Please don't grow up too fast sunshine! Mommy

And she thinks that eating play dough is mighty good.
