Apolline's Birthday

 Golden Girl

How can this possibly be?

How can it be that a little person who didn't exist such a short time ago is two years old already? This little beauty, with the shy head lowering, and mischievous peeking back up, would have ousted Shirley Temple off the Silver Screen had she been born in another generation.

She walks and talks, eats grown up food, colors a little, listens to stories, plays with her loving and caring big sister, very occasionally (like her dear Aunt Haddums so long ago) bumps into walls (!), lugs dollys and furry animals, protests long train rides, plays on the deck and in the garden,  - oh, how can this possibly be!

Happy Birthday, Golden Girl. May the world always be at  your feet.
