” I did a little Q&A with Sofia. A year ago, there’s no way she would have answered all of these questions, but now my little girl is not so little anymore. My favourite part was watching her process each question and come up with the perfect answer. I love seeing her personality and her own special way of looking at things.

Seriously, I want to do this every day. I just know she would have different answers for every question. I love watching her mind work. As she was thinking about her answer she’d stare blankly out the window. And then I would see her face change and light up when she came up with a response. Sometimes she would giggle to herself, and then she sang the ABCs from start to finish. When I asked about her favourite book, she ran to get it. I’m sure she just grabbed whichever one she saw first laying on the floor, but she found a way to tell me why it was her favourite at that particular moment.
I think she felt important, and I am glad for that. I want her to know that she matters, that what she thinks and feels and the things she cares about matters to me because I love her. I will never stop asking her questions and I will always listen to her answers.
