And then she leaped into a mountainous and unexplored region of her heart. #115  m. duval

just when i think i couldn't possibly love this child anymore. she does something. it could be a look or the way she laughs or just being her heartful self and i am sent over the moon again. she has a way of digging deeper inside my soul. i find i stare at her all the time - just watching -  in total awe. i swear she is growing right in front of me. her legs are getting longer her hair is getting longer her eyes sparkle. she is reading now. i find her tucked in a corner somewhere with a stack of books by her side reading out loud. she reads to her baby dolls, to her stuffed animals, to anything and anyone who will listen. i am mesmerized. she's mine?! really?!! i get to claim her as my own!! how did i get so lucky. the stars aligned the night that she came through (to snag a line from boz scaggs). all else could fail, all else has failed -  but she is the constant. and i am constantly amazed. forever delighted. and so proud. so very very proud of this delightful creature. annie viola. xo

this post is beautiful! i love the pictures - she looks like a little '60's flower child! and that's awesome she is learning how to read and she actually enjoys doing so. i think it's the most important thing for a child to do.
