These days, Little E made sure her “friends” have eaten before she finished her meals.
She would make pizzas, and carefully placed them into plates before serving them to her toy friends. Today, the ones which were invited to lunch were Flounder and Carebear. When she turned 18 mo, she had already started whipping up dishes for my toy puppy.
She would prepare the pasta meticulously, add ingredients as she deemed fit, then dished out a suitable portion onto a plate, before serving it to puppy with her two tiny hands.
Besides being a very caring little person, Little E is also ultra-patient with her love ones. In music school, she would always wait patiently for her turn to play the musical instruments. When it is time to choose scarves or shakers for dance, she would always wait quietly till everyone has taken theirs, before she takes whatever was leftover in the box.
I pray that this character trait would remain as her positive trait, as it is a small glimpse into the quality that God calls us to possess – preferring others before ourselves. “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3 NIV)
Little E started play-pretending since she turned 18 mo.
