julia: a status report

I forgot to put on my glasses when I went to see the girls yesterday morning. Julia looked at me and went blicketing out, then came back a minute later to give me my glasses and phone.

She’s uncannily competent. She howls if you clip her into her high chair, because she wants to do it herself. When she’s especially pleased she exclaims “EEEE!” in a way that leaves no doubt that she is a young chimpanzee.

The rest of the time she’s just hugely pleased.

Tonight she said “BYE MI-YO” and my heart turned over.

Her hair smells like sunshine and apples. Her hug makes life worth living. She is an intergalactic gamma ray burst of love.
