Oh, the miracle of recovery and resilience in small children! We FaceTimed today, me at my desk, she in her highchair, reigning over the remains of a decadent meal paid for by us: jumbo shrimp, rich cheese, good wine. Everyone in fine spirits and infinitely relieved at her blissfully silent breathing. She holds the phone herself now, knows enough not to hit that red button too soon. Itsy Bitsy Spider still tops the chart, and she says "down" in the right place and with both hands. We need to record a new song before mama and daddy lose their minds.
