Julia has started posing for pictures. Last night, we were on the UW Terrace for an FUS meeting. She enjoyed seeing the water and the boats. After the meeting she wanted me to take pictures of the boats so that she could draw them later on. And then, she wanted me to take a picture of her in front of the water. She has never asked for such things. I don’t think she has ever thought of taking pictures so that she could copy them later. Is she becoming aware of herself, and of the world outside of her as separate from herself? I hold my breath in hope.
