sundee afternoon

ga. i love chubby knees in short dresses. this little number, from my favorite new thrift haunt, American Vintage, was begging to be shot in black & white.

we also did have color today.

:: Little today, during a conversation: "wow. mom. this is turning into a long talk."

:: Wee today, while dropping chocolate chips into warm vanilla pudding: "milk, pees."

we capture the canyon

celebrated tracker, Famous Shoes, being busy {also fictional and, dead} we hired the young but scrappy, Sleeps On Her Face, to guide us to the waterfall on Saturday.

ps - does anyone know how to make the pictures clickable/enlargable? i thought it depended on the browser i composed in but apparently it's not that. advice appreciated.

"mom, do you want to drive my eyelashes?"

:: come here. you should use my eyelashes so your eyes don't get cracked.

:: i'm so hungry! hurry, i'm starting to get little!

:: oh, i found a fairy toe under my bottom. [pulls half a cheerio from her car seat.] it's a fairy's head but it's broken.
:: mom, i just want to have the world. i won't break it.
:: i can't work under these connictions!

all of this was just in the last hour. at least she used small enough sound bites for me to remember--usually the crazy manifests as a stream of inchoate exclamations and explanations. i do, completely, love it.
