Sometime in the last month, Devil has undergone some kind of sea change. Even her teacher noticed - she commented after the first day of the new term "What happened to her? She's so grown up!" Umm, yes, yes she is. We're not sure exactly when or why, but it's an exciting new stage, and we're having lots of fun.
Despite the fact that she bears an almost uncanny and eerie resemblance to her father (in both the physical and personality-type ways), I am glad to report that some of my genes seem to be getting expressed as well.
I'm not sure if I've ever admitted to her that I used to walk home from school every day reading as I went. If I did, she certainly heard me (that one time only, mind you) and remembered it. If I haven't told her about this, I can only point to genetics for this one. Finally!
