“Good heavens, is this child EVER unhappy?”
“She is just pure happiness isn’t she?”
“She has what we call around here ‘smile bringer eyes.’”
“She makes me smile!!!”
If you’ve never met Vivi, please do. She’s the child who got me through the dreariest February in recent memory. I realize most, if not all, toddlers are incredibly effervescent spirits of boundless energy and joy, but there’s something about Vivi. She flirts with old men at the grocery store. She says goodbye to everyone and hi to everything. She walks into a room like she owns the place and bunny is never (if ever) very far behind. She’s a magical little creature who smells of honey and kisses on demand. While she has worn me right out with her constant trouble making, her innocence and sense of humor have kept me such good company over the last dreary, miserable month.
All of the following pictures were taken during February and should give you a pretty accurate idea of who I am lucky enough to spend my days with.
