“A portrait of Eloise, once a week, every week, in 2014”
eloise: there are bleachers in the park by our home. You have worked your way from walking along the bottom bleacher holding my hand, to walking along on your own to trying to climb to the next one up (and not making it) to, just this week, climbing up to the very tippy top all on your own (and with butterfly wings on). You weren’t scared. You didn’t ask me for help. You got up there, sat with your back against the fence and gave me the proudest look I had ever seen on a 19 month old’s face. You beautiful, determined child.
