Peeking Through My Belly Button

I was up in NY over the weekend to celebrate my niece's 3rd birthday. She is such a cutie pie -- just the sweetest little girl you could ever imagine with her big blue eyes and blonde hair. Well, she was acting a little silly at the table one afternoon, trying to get her Aunt Zoomy's (me) attention, so I decided to tell her a little fib. I told her that Baby Billups was looking out through my belly button, so that she had to be on her best behavior so she could set a good example for her baby cousin. She looked at me with wide eyes and said, "REALLY? Baby Billups can see me?". I said "Yup!" and we went on with our meal. Well, later in the day, Ellie was on the potty and asked if when she was done, if she could look at Baby Billups. I was a little confused, but then she got up, walked over to my belly, lifted my shirt, and put her eye up to my belly button! She said it was too dark in there to see anything. : ) Gosh, I love that little girl! She really makes me laugh.
