Tuesday

I sometimes try to imagine what Q will look like when she's older. These days you can see flickers of it in her, flickers of that willowy girl interlaced with her dimpling cheeks and baby giggle. I don't want to lose my two-year-old too soon...my hip-riding, squirming, shiny-cheeked, ever-grinning two-year-old who bugles her happiness to the spring sky. But it's sweet to imagine, now and then, what she will grow into. This illustration was inspired by those imaginings...

I can see it. I think you have down right, except you forgot her beloved ball. Lovely image Maia.

So cool. Any chance it will make it into your store? Love the 'salopette' with the belt.

I like the way you pictured how I imagine her, a mix of a tomboy but with definate girly details ie hair in plaits :)...
