nona says that your belly in this profile photo looks just like mine did when i was your age. also, the mussy, fine hair that gets a little matted and just seems to always stick out in the back. i had that too. and, again, with your love of shoes and accessories. when you were born you looked exactly like your papa (it was utterly endearing and completely freaky). and now, more and more, i see myself in you and it makes me very happy.
i love you. love, mama.
