Nate's been in New York on a business trip all week, working from dawn until 1am some days. Vivi has missed him soooo much, more than she ever has before. I think my mom said three years old was the year I became a real Daddy's girl, and for the first time I can see how it's happening with Vivi. He's coming home today, and Vivi is super excited to see him. She said to me yesterday, "Mommy, I want to go on a work trip with Daddy. That would be fun! It will be just the two of us, right Mommy?"
To get her ready for his return, I took her to get her hair cut for the first time yesterday so she'll have something to surprise him with. Her pure unconditional love for us is so adorable, and I just wish I could keep a version of her this age forever. I will miss the little girl! While she was getting her hair cut, I was thinking of the munchkin who used to sit in the back of the car singing "Papa, Papa-zizi!" when she could barely talk. That little chubby tot is already forever gone! They grow up so fast.
