Waving hello.



She is addicted to waving. She wakes herself up to practice. I watch her do it in the middle of the night; I can see her in the little video screen of the monitor, roused from her sleep to sit up, point with her little finger to the stuffed animals at the end of her crib and wave. Yes, just wave. Then she plunks back over and falls back to sleep. Totoro gets a lot of waves too. So does every new human she ever encounters - especially while sitting on her throne in the grocery cart, maybe her favorite position of all. So basic and so human and so delightful.
