Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind."Pooh!"he whispered.
"Nothing,"said Piglet,taking Pooh's paw.
"I just wanted to be sure of you."
I don't think Winnie was quite two in this picture. I remember this day so clear -- this picture doesn't do the moment justice. She was playing so content and the sun was streaming through the window and if she were not breath taking enough already -- the sun kissed version stopped me in my tracks and placed the moment in a retrievable part of my mind.
This is Lizzie after we returned from a weekend getaway to find our snowwoman had melted (I don't know why, but I remember her name was Vinda). Lizzie was not happy and did command her return -- Vinda didn't listen.
And, oh my gosh, with the Kelly dolls in the other hand. Lizzie has always loved all things small. She carries and stashes small things. I always wonder what goes through her mind when she looses some important tiny toy and it will turn up -- sometimes months -- later in a pocket, behind a pillow, under a barbie couch. She stashes and forgets, but when I find these items, they always seem so purposefully placed in a strange way -- I know she had a plan. Happy.
Winnie on a humid day -- oh, those curls. Shortly after this pic was taken, we cut her hair and the curls were never the same. She still has these amazing curls on the under layer of hair, but the top layer is straight -- Gemini hair for a Gemini girl.
