Sant'Angelo Bridge

Here is Mabel posing with her Grandpa on the Sant'Angelo Bridge in Rome on her 7-month birthday. Whereas usually the thing that boggles my mind about old photos of her is how teeny tiny and wee she looks, in this instance it's actually sort of the opposite--how very much she looks exactly like her own dear self of today, though she is less than a third of her present age in this picture. But that face--and the way it engages with the world--has been inherent to her, pretty much from day one.
