How the heck did this happen? The first picture is not long after her 11th birthday, the second is just a couple of weeks ago.
Like me, like all of us, she is a work in progress; she had some bumpy patches today, her birthday. But unlike me, unlike most of us, she gets that about herself. And I think that meta-maturity is what impresses me most about her.
She'll do all right. Yes, she will.
