Yesterday I took Evie out into the yard to play when I came home from work. She loves to get to run around the yard. While I was watering the garden I saw something very sweet happening. For the first time Evie noticed her shadow on the ground.
Suddenly she was standing up and squatting down. Then back up. Down again. She twirled, her shadow twirled. Her arms waved back and forth, so did her shadow. She waved, and she saw this black little shadow waving too.
While she may not have understood what she was looking at, or my calling it her shadow, she was very intrigued. It was so sweet to see her trying to figure out this whole new thing to her.
