i had a big load of jasper lilith clothes that i washed this morning…i pulled them out of the dryer, put them in her laundry basket and left it on the floor while i went off and did something else (i don’t remember what but surely it was Very Important)…

when i walked back into the dining room, jasper had pulled all the clothes, towels, crib sheets, etc. out of the basket and piled them up in a big, warm, comfy clothes-stack (similar to a haystack but less prickly)…she then proceeded to lay on top of the clothes-stack and roll around on it! i am not kidding, people, she rolled around in the pile like a little puppy!  i was speechless with…something…pride?  love?  amusement?  amazement?  tenderness?  i don’t know what it was but it made me slow in getting the camera…

by the time, i got the camera up and raring to go, she had reduced the big pile to a flat, widespread clothes-puddle (similar to a mud puddle but less muddy)…jasper then just lay there amongst the clothes looking as content and sleepy as…as a little girl who just got to roll around in straight-from-the-dryer, soft clothes as much as she wanted to 🙂

after a bit, she sat up and started pulling all the laundry ariound her again…i stepped in to take the clothes so they wouldn’t set all wrinkley (it was a tug-of-war with the first couple of shirts but jasper gave it up when i let her know that she wasn’t going to win this one) and left her the rest of the laundry to play around in…

when i came back in the room from putting her clothes up, she had gathered all the laundry around her and was still sitting in the middle of the pile like a dragon hoarding her gold…luckily, this particular dragon is pretty friendly and she decided to help me put it all away 🙂

oh, and her pacifier?  she is only allowed to have the paci. during her naptime now but!  somehow she dragged a stool to stand on so she could reach the “hiding place” (i keep it up and out of her line of sight and therefore, usually, she doesn’t think about it) and had it in before i even realized what she was doing!  it was close enough to her nap time that i didn’t bother taking it away from her…but so much for that hidey hole, guess i have to find a higher place to keep the paci. now!
