This is you right now.
Walking everywhere – sometimes a little unsteadily.
But this is more how I see you sometimes, – a blur that is growing up so fast I can barely keep up.
Here are a few facts about you:

- You are very ticklish.
- When you know it is time to get out of the tub, you splash as hard as you can, as if to get in just a little more fun.
