Just to lighten the mood a bit (before I dump my heart out again in the next post!) - here is a silly video. Vienne could often make characters out of anything and play with them. She had made "friends" out of torn pieces of napkin (yes, napkin...a large torn piece for the Daddy, medium for the Mommy and little for the Baby), rocks, sticks...you name it. Yes, she had real toys. But all parents know - kids really don't need "real toys" now do they?
This is a video of Vienne playing with some of my crochet hooks. Her voice is kind of quiet in the beginning..but if you listen you can catch that she is making conversation between the crochet family members. My favorite part is the end, of course. This was the first time I had ever heard of this new "place".
