-- the way she tried to blow on the dandelion in the front lawn
-- her concentrated effort to put the dandelion stem back into the ground after she picked it
-- her arms tight around my neck
-- her mischievous smiles when she feeds the dog Cheerios
-- her fingers pinched together around an object when she hands me things that she finds on the ground
-- her smile when she sees me at the door to her classroom at the end of the day
-- her hands playing with my hair while she falls asleep
-- the way she tries to mimic whatever she sees people doing
-- the way she knows just what to do on every page of "Pat the Bunny"
-- her grin when her Daddy gets home at the end of the day
that I hope can remember forever.
