the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Baby M

I took this photo of my cousin’s baby Maeve a couple of weeks ago, and it will be interesting to see how much bigger she is and how many more rolls have formed on her legs when we see her again this weekend. It’s been fascinating to watch Marlo with my cousin, how she is grappling with the fact that she is no longer the sole focus of her attention. I cannot have a casual conversation with Kenzie without Marlo inserting her body and physically interrupting us. Fascinating and a little sad. My own little Baby M having to grow up.
