We have loved looking at all our bushes and trees every day, seeing the emerging new life of leaves and flower buds. I am in the habit of talking to plants to encourage them, since there's been a little research indicating that it works. And after such a long fall and winter, I frankly feel excited to see spring coming around the bend at last.
So I guess it's not really a surprise that Maeve was fist-bumping new buds on our bushes yesterday. I asked her, concerned that she was hitting the plant, what was going on, and she told me: Mom, I'm just fist-bumping the bush because it's growing!
This is the same girl that started waving at trees before she waved at people.
I love that about her.
