This is Elora. She's two. Elora likes books, making cat sounds, and noodles. She strongly dislikes: Closed doors. Her parents, well, I could tell you all about her parents because they're close friends of mine but it's just easier to sum it up like this: they're awesome.
Elora has a distinctive style that includes comfortable shoes. She says what's on her mind but she adds please and thank yous. When she falls, she wipes herself off and keeps on going - tantrums are for babies. You know, like one year olds. She knows how to play. She pauses and thinks before she answers questions. She asks for help. Closed doors do not intimidate her AND she doesn't take them personally. She says hello and goodbye like she means it.
Also, she called me aunt linda, at which point my camera and I melted into the Lagoon.
