Sarah has a standard reaction to the camera nowadays, though she will occasionally exert sheer force of will and not only stay put but assume a pleasant expression for the sake of faraway relatives who want to track the changes as she grows up or who’d like to see her in person but will settle for a photo today.
So, December 14, eating something with chopsticks — that would be a special meal in the steakhouse part of the Plum Garden. There was much smoke and flame in the air that day.
Anyway, here she is. This is the most recent photo I could find on file, though I know she’s allowed others to be taken this year. If I find anything good, up it goes. She’s wearing that hairband now, so that could almost be a picture from today.
