Conversation about my daughter, after reading Meister Eckhart

I opened my laptop to see this picture of my 5-month old on my desktop:

I showed the screen to my wife, and said, "Look at your daughter. God, she's perfect."

"What did you think she'd be like?--look like," my wife asked.

"Well, I guess about like this--but the way a doll would look like this. I couldn't animate her. Couldn't imagine her being human and responding to me as she does..."

"Yeah, but--"

"It's like--she sees me, and stays perfect. Somehow."
