"How many birds?"

Permalink

"Oh! Ummmmm. Well it's changed as I've gotten bigger? And it depends on the size of the bird. I used to be full with just one or two little ones, but now I can go through six or more bigger ones if I'm really hungry. But birds are easy to find and fun to catch so I tend to grab them whenever I see a chance and no humans can see me do it."

Permalink

"Okay. We can take you out hunting every day if that's what you need."

Permalink

"Oh! Yeah, I do catch some every day, I get hungry if I don't eat anything."

Permalink

"We don't usually hunt that often but it's no trouble."

Permalink

"Okay! I can catch them all by myself, anyway, I don't need to be thrown to them anymore."

Permalink

"Thrown to them! Do you still like being thrown to them?"

Permalink

"Yes! It's fun even if I don't need it."

Permalink

"Well, I can probably throw you at birds all right."

Permalink

"Eeeee!" she says, bouncing a little in Rosalie's arms. "Then yes that would be very fun, thank you. Now the pictures have you throwing me at birds so much, I wasn't even trying for that!"

Permalink

"Are you usually trying for everything that happens to you?"

Permalink

"Mmmm. Not usually but I have been a lot lately. Uncle Blair was easy and I didn't really have to try for things to be good with him, they just were? And things are getting that way with you but there's... lots of potential pictures to get settled, and not all of them are as nice as the others. And I don't like that at all, I have had enough bad pictures, so I am aiming for the very best."

Permalink

"Huh... how do you do that?"

Permalink

She gives a thoughtful hum and starts nibbling on one of her nails.

"I.... try to? Like... like running through a new place I've never been, at top, top speed, and paying as much attention to things that are far, far in the distance as possible, and then continuing to move in that direction while I... figure out how to navigate a twisting jungle of pictures to get there, even though it keeps moving every time I move, while also still doing things that are not just looking? It's hard."

Permalink

"That sounds really hard, yeah. Gosh. - how old are you?"

Permalink

"Ummm. My birthday is on the 19th, but Uncle Blair said we celebrate it monthly instead of yearly because I grow so fast and he didn't want me to miss out. And we have celebrated five of those. But then I was running around without him for a while and I might have missed one."

Permalink

"It's the eighteenth now. So I guess your birthday is tomorrow! That's not very much time to plan your party."

Permalink

"Oh! It's not, but that's okay. I don't like cake and it's just an excuse to celebrate me being born anyway. Finding good new grownups is a very good good birthday present."

Permalink

"Oh good. And I suppose we are going to be getting you a whole wardrobe."

Permalink

"Mhm! Can I help pick my clothes, Uncle Blair wasn't very good at it. I think you're better at it, but I still like picking."

Permalink

"Of course! I'll bring you to Sears and we can look at everything they have. Do you know how to act human in front of people?"

Permalink

"Yeah! You should hold me for most of the time there though, sometimes I still break things even though I don't mean to if I get too excited. But I know that if anyone asks I just tell them my birthday was on the nineteenth and let my grownup say what year it looks like I turned!"

Permalink

"Very clever. I can carry you the whole time, I'm not going to get tired of it."

Permalink

"Okay! I will eventually but not for a while." Snuuuuuugs.

Permalink

Snuuuugs! "What were your parents' names?"
