You all know by now that I have lost my heart to a little girl. A little girl with big brown eyes and hair filled with curls. Her name is Baby J!
And even though Baby J looks like a delicate little flower she is really more like a tornado, and I mean that in a good way! She is non-stop the whole time and she throws herself into everything.
If she wants a glass of water she grabs it with her little hands and tips the whole glass into her mouth. If she's playing with a toy and she wants to set it down she plops it down with all her might. She is what we lovingly call "manos de fiero" or "hands of steel". She does nothing lightly and delicately.
One thing she absolutely delights in is watching videos on my lap top or my cell phone. Cat Videos! She loves them and the minute she sees me she says "Tats, tats, tats!" Over and over until I put a youtube cat video on for her.
The other day I found a cat video for her that we had never seen. Baby J was laying on my bed and she wanted to hold my cell phone to watch the video. Need I say I don't trust her? Well I don't. I could just see her tossing my cell phone over her head and banging it against the wall, so I help on to it which didn't make her too happy.
But then she did something, something so sweet and gentle and loving that it made my heart melt with love for this little girl all over again. Watch this video, it's short, about a couple of minutes long or you can go to the 2:13 mark to see what I'm going to talk about.
So see the last cat? A sweet little kitten in a basket? Well the first time Baby J saw that kitten she took her little fingers and ever so gently stroked the screen of my phone like she was petting that kitten. I had never seen her be so gentle and then she brought the phone up to her little mouth and kissed it! And she does that every single time she watches this video. I think she's going to be a cat lover, like me!
