We embarked on teaching you the ‘thank you’ sign at around the same time as we taught you to blow kisses. They’re pretty similar, and you quickly adopted the action of blowing kisses. You have become an expert kiss-blower, launching them through the air at dogs and people all over town. This action melts my heart every morning. Your dad holds you while I kiss you goodbye and head out the door to work. I turn around to look at you when I’ve gotten down the steps, and you blow me a kiss. It tests my willpower every single day; it’s so hard to leave after that sweet gesture. Luckily I know I’ll get another one tomorrow.
