On growing up

What words exist to appropriately describe
the experience of you
growing into yourself and
away from me?

Today your grandma
sent me a video while
I was working
of you, leaping bravely
into the pool.
When you popped out of the water,
your first remark
was a lament
that you forgot to yell
"Cannonball!"
