I used to blog around here, from time to time, until I had to pack a 4 bedroom house with a full basement, and move 4 hours away. Too busy to sleep, let alone blog. But today, I've slept. I'm taking a mini-vacation, back to the old home town, staying with my darling cousin so I can tie up ends left loose by the move, but also so that I can take an extended breather. I decided to take this opportunity, 9 days before Small One's fourth birthday, to take photos of her, in the garden where we've taken her birthday photos for the past three birthdays. If you'll recall, I bought a dress in a size I thought she could wear for her first two birthdays. I was surprised to find that it still fit on the third birthday, and even more surprised to learn that it still does!
This calls for a retrospective.

I realize it might seem like cheating, to post a bunch of photos on my first blog after a long absence, but that's all I've got for now. I'll be back soon, I promise.
