Portrait Project


beach girl

eloise: you’re funny, you’re smart, you’re beautiful. You like to dance and push strollers around and walk as far as your little legs can carry you. You give me kisses on my lips because you see me do it that way to Daddy. I never liked the idea of kissing babies on the lips, but you insist and now, it tickles me to no end. You love to laugh and sign “more” when I tickle you. You sign “more” when I sing you songs. You sign “more” when I read you books. You love animals, especially foxes, elephants, cats and your puppy dogs. You like picking things up. Rocks, shells, pokey seed pods. The world has suddenly opened up and you are exploring every inch of it. And, I, your Mama am loving being your guide.
