Baby in an Ottoman
I had so much fun winkling out a really old baby polaroid for last week's birthday post that I couldn't resist digging into the archive again this week. And look what I came up with! So tiny! And yet with just the same nice face. This image struck me as especially funny because lately Mabel has take to discussing how, when she was a "teeny tiny baby" we used to put her in the storage ottoman. Now, as this photo shows, this is indeed quite true, but the mysterious part is how does she know this? Did we mention it in passing recently, and then forget doing so? Or does she actually have memories of being six months old? No idea. Just one of the many reasons the small-child-brain remains a profound mystery.
