She asks questions incessantly. Just like her Mumma words pour from her mouth about anything and everything; she is rarely quiet.
Nature and all its wondrous minutiae fascinate her. Her body stills for a tiny point in time as she investigates this creature, that speckled leaf. The moment has passed, the winged friend has taken flight and now she is all spinning and whirling. I am dizzy watching her.
Her gaze narrows in on something far off in the distance. I for a second see the woman in the delicate features of her beautiful face. My heart flutters a little.
But there, returned once more, my crinkly nosed baby. I can hold her hand for a while longer. My honey girl.
The pattern for Bijou's Adam is by the amazingly talented Tikki. I've ravelled it here. The delicious pima cotton yarn was a dream to work with.
