It isn't totally obvious like when you are trying to leave your 18 month old in the nursery. I think she is embarrassed a little and is trying to handle it quietly on her own. Which I appreciate, but it is still there.
She still freaks out if we are getting ready to go somewhere. There is no way I am allowed to get in the car before her. No chance. If she isn't ready yet she just grans her stuff and finishes in the car.
But two recent things have started happening.
When she is downstairs watching TV and I head upstairs, she asks me if I'm staying upstairs. If I say yes she walks up to the landing in the stairwell and makes herself comfortable. It's as close as she can be and still see her show. Such a silly goose.
The other development isn't new, but it made me so sad for her yesterday. Her little mind must be a wreck sometimes. She was playing in the bath and had been there for a long time (she was at least 95%water from all the absorption). I went to Emily's bus stop after telling her where I was going and that I would be right back. I came home to her hysterically trying to pull clothes onto her wet little body (not an easy task) as she was crying. It had taken me a minute. Seriously... Poor baby.
Anyway, who knows why, but apparently I'm not allowed to leave her site too much anymore.
