there could be many terms of endearment for you but flower girl gladly takes the crown.

here you are, paying close attention as your grandma tends to orchids in dire need of care. you admire the process, want to help and participate. you deeply dislike when i pluck a flower from its stem to hand it to you – you never accept it. and you have never plucked one either, much preferring to pet their petals and blow them kisses. but there have been many instances where you brought flowers (already plucked, left forgotten on the ground) to someone upon meeting them: family members, kids on the playground; and you can’t seem to understand why nobody does the same kindness, to plants or each other.

you have a brave yet sensitive heart.
i absolutely adore that about you, hope the world never lets you squander it too much or break it too hard.
i hope you never forget to cherish it good.

family holidays by the beach were enjoyed as slow as possible.
you are still dismissive of the sea and all its thundering sounds
but love being in the sand, lying in it, sprinkling toys (and food) with it…
such a versatile, fun thing to have around!

driving miss baby.
we found this oh-very-90s toy stroller that used to be my sister’s and we have passed it on to you.
you enjoy taking the baby on little walks around the garden, sure, but most of all,
you love collecting your precious stones and sticks on the seat.
i mean, seriously, what else should that moving nook be used for?

taking the expression “put yourself in someone else’s shoes” literally.
no pair of sneakers, boots, flip flops – from any family member – has been safe with her around,
the temptation to try them on is far too great.

one of the few pictures of us, not captured by me, where we are deep in play and giggles.
feels good once in a while to let the memory keepsaking fall into another pair of hands (and eyes).

on this day, the weather was so hot but we went to a friend’s birthday picnic anyway
and you only moved away from the feast to venture about the park,
exploring at your will.
I love the balance you show between being social and in your own little world.
