She’s watching me. She’s watching us. At the grocery store, at the post office, at home while taking photos of a hat and thermal shirt. We are shaping her, our words and reactions and behavior providing the wheel at which her clay spins. And although this shot is the one we ended up with…

This is the one that matters:

Merry Christmas to you and yours, friends. May your little ones delight in your shadow, always.
