The other night after her bath, Violet refused to settle down for bed. She squirmed so much I could barely contain her in my arms. So I looked down at her with a serious face, said "Viiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiolet..." and made sort of a grunt. Immediately her lower lip curled into the saddest pout and her eyes welled up in tears. That was the first time she displayed such an obvious emotional response to the intonation of my voice and my facial expression. Sweet, sensitive girl.
