Amazing Baby

The other day the girls and I checked an old favorite out of the library, the charming board book "I Kissed the Baby!" by Mary Murphy. In it, the animals are all abuzz over a new baby in their midst, and they joyfully compare notes with each other: "I kissed the baby! Did you kiss the baby?"; "I sang to the baby! Did you sing to the baby?" At the end, a mama duck responds to one excited query by saying, "Of course I kissed the baby, my own amazing baby", and we find out that the baby in question is a quacking yellow duckling.

Yesterday Julia said to me, "Mama, Vivi is my own amazing baby."

Seriously, now: how sweet is that?
