Jessie and I both just looked at these pictures and murmured the words, "Beautiful." and "Miracle". She is smiling. My god. Jessie wants me to tell you how much it means to her that you and Sophie listen to the Cicada Ladies. All love...Mary
Elizabeth I am overjoyed. Sophie looks so very, very happy in the "And still, this:" photo. Such a beautiful smile, enjoying her family and her birthday and so visibly present with you all. Your kindness in sharing all of this has made an already wonderful day so much more special - Thank You!
Oh, she is lovely - how wonderful it is to see her smiling and laughing! The party looks as if it was fun, as well as pretty and delicious. Happy 19th to Sophie!
Those tulips! That cake! Sophies outfit! Her joy! My candle wish is that it sustains you for a moment longer.
Sophie laughing and smiling and so present for it all. We are witnessing a continuing miracle.
Glorious. Everything. Just glorious.
That's amazing, and beautiful! Seeing her smiling and responding and so much a part of the celebrations -- well, it's terrific. I love the look on Henry's face, too. You always capture the best expressions.
