happy birthday, mabel!
three years old this one. when she was new i said it felt like we had a wild animal in the house. it was exciting and beautiful but also scary. and that’s still how i feel around this girl. she’s got a house big heart, a deep memory, eyes open wide.
(this picture is from late September when the swifts were flying…her nose is scarred from the big fall down the stairs and her mouth is smeared with chocolate!)
