Bewitching: Caitlin turns 9

 
 
The child who changed my life:
 
magic door to first grandmotherhood,
 
the gingerbread lady in the woods
 
come home to herself at last
 
 
 
 
Only minutes old, all pink and gold
 
I held my breath
 
and watched her intrepid arrival
 
 
 
 
 
Born October 31,
 
and all her attendants costumed
 
as if attending some great medieval ball
 
 
 
 
A magic little football passed from hand to hand
 
Her birth announced on the radio
 
during a Canucks game!
 
Already unique in many ways.
 
 
 
 
 
Happy girl in pink, with her Faux-hawk. . .
 
 
 
 
Cinnamon heart-child. . .
 
 

 
 
 
Celebrate!
 
 
 
 
Caitlin by the shore
 
 
 
 
 
 
Little mermaid
 
 
 
 
Sweet girl in red
 
 
 
 
 
 
Down in Mexico, with Bo Derek braids
 
 
 
 
Halloween birthday, 2011
 
 
 
 
Have a Joyous 9th Birthday, Caitlin

. . . and Happy Halloween!
