Eloise: Yes, that’s a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach you are holding happily. You are quite the nature girl. No bug is too scary or yucky. “Mama, he’s just sitting on my hand. He’s kinda cute.” ( Mama backs away slowly).
Eloise: You need glasses! I took you to the optometrist after you had been complaining of headaches. And sure enough, you need glasses for astigmatism and far sightedness. Of course, your Mama was a little sad by this news. It’s always weird to hear your child isn’t “perfect” in every way. 😉
But… I wear glasses (for nearsightedness and your Gramma and aunt and uncle wear glasses) …. so you are in definite good company. Plus, you look pretty darling in the glasses you picked out. Hoping there’s a whole new world out there for you to see.
Eloise: I know, I know… this isn’t quite a photo of just you…. but it’s still very much a portrait and a portrait with someone you love and who loves you so very much. It’s so neat seeing your relationship with your “Dada” grow and develop. You two have a special connection and I love watching you talk about ice skating and fossils and riding bikes and the dog park and so on and so forth… You are certainly one lucky girl to have a “dadasaurus rex” like yours.
