Daddy went back to work today after the winter break. We had a good day, you and I. Normal is good. We missed the mundane, I think. You babbled "da-da-da-da" throughout the morning and I told you, "Daddy is at work." When his car sounded in the driveway as the sun was going down you cocked your head and looked all around in your sweet, befuddled way. We ran to the door together and let him into the warmth for kisses and cuddles on the couch.
