Audra really enjoys being carried around. When I come home from work, she instantly becomes upset until I pick her up. When we go out, she needs to spend some time “up”. It’s one of the only words she knows. The whole thing reminds me of koala babies, as she clings to me while I walk around and do chores.
Unfortunately, her mommy isn’t quite as tall as me. Today we discovered that mommy must be too short, because Audra said “up” after being picked up. She continued to fuss and say “up” until we understood: it doesn’t count unless she’s up high with daddy.
