This picture simultaneously blows me away and breaks my heart in a very specific way. She got the guitar for Christmas. I heard her playing it while I was in the other room, and when I walked in there, I saw her and she just might as well have been 20. And then the babydoll right next to her is one she'd had since before Eden was born, with new baby clothes that Alice gave to her for Christmas. She is seeming more and more on the cusp of growing out of being a little girl and this was just one more example of it to me. It somehow captures that bridge of girlhood and big girl to me.
