Our daughter, Saga, turned 1 recently. On the evening before her birthday, I asked my husband, Nick, about his favorite moment as a dad during her first year. He told me the following anecdote.

"A few weeks ago, there was this moment when we were both listening to the birds. Saga was talking to them. I whistled the cardinal's whistle, and it called back to us. So I kept whistling. The cardinal flew to a tree right in front of us. I pointed to it and said, 'Saga, look, it's a cardinal.' Then she pointed and babbled to it. We were having a conversation about something together for the first time. We were experiencing the bird together."
