So far Natalie has made it clear where we all stand.
She really likes her brothers, she thinks baba is entertaining, and she adores her sisters.
Me though? Well...it could be said that I'm not quite her favorite at this time.
She's comfortable with me. She's willing to hold my hand and even happier to let me carry her.
I'd even go as far as to say she likes me...she's just not ready to fully let me into her heart at this time.
She's refusing to call me Mama and is calling me calling me ayi (auntie) instead.
I'm willing to be patient though...to slowly but surely earn her trust and then eventually her love.
And for now, I'll settle for a few more kisses and smiles.
