Dress from Mexico, a gift from Ray & Emilia.
Within the last two weeks, she started saying her name. In the car we listen to the Bach Cello Suites, and when one movement ends she says, “Yay!”, and then “More” until the next begins.
New words daily. Singing in her own language. Went to Maymont with mama the other day, saw a buffalo, at which she raised her shoulders (in the Eric Carle book, “From Head to Toe” that’s what the buffalo does).
I cannot record enough, with words or images, to convey the magic and intensity of daily life with her.
