6 years, 9 months.
You have this habit of sneaking up on me when I’m in the kitchen. You’re not necessarily trying, but you are so quiet when you come downstairs.
A few days ago, I had looked up from doing the dishes, and you were standing a few feet away, smiling at me. It took a second to realize you were even there!
I said, “Holly, you’re the same colors as our living room! I couldn’t actually see you!”
Since then, you have been playing this to your advantage..
This morning, it was time for me take you outside to the bus stop. I walked right past you.
You were effortlessly hiding underneath the blanket on the rug.
When you realized I assumed you were upstairs instead, you started giggling, and gave yourself away.
If you hadn’t, I would have been looking for you for a while!
