Some of these photos you have seen before, but they needed to be in the collage. As usual, click if you want a larger view and to read the caption under two of the photos. Enjoy.
For the first five minutes I was in this baby’s mother’s store, I was fascinated by the baby’s stillness and her fascination with her own hands. That whole time she stared at her right hand as though she held an iPhone in it. I was beginning to wonder if she was autistic and went up to see if she’d respond to me.
She did, immediately, with a face-splitting grin. She had the grip of a lumberjack and held on to my hand for a long time as I talked to her mom. I finally had to pry her fingers loose. Darling child and definitely not autistic.
