David’s mother Roselin came up for a couple of days this week. She hasn’t seen the girls since last November, so of course, she got to meet Calista and was astounded by how much Brioni has grown up.

While we were talking, Rosie started remembering a book she created for David with pictures of familiar objects labelled neatly, much like one I had created for Aïcha. I knew that we actually had kept that book, and as it contained some pictures of David as a boy, he enjoyed showing the photos to the girls.

The photos of David weren’t dated, so I’m not sure exactly how old he was, but probably around two years old, much like Brioni’s age now.
