On the way to Marfa last week, we stopped in Hatch to get the kids some passports. Turns out T or C is appointment only and everyone in the town is getting a passport this next month. Here are their little pictures. I love them--especially Theo's, he took it without me close and was being so shy.
After looking at these two pictures side by side, I realized my joke of Margot's turning into a sweet potato is not so much of a joke anymore. Girlfriend's got a full blown case of carotenemia. Otherwise known as, sweet potato/butternut squash poisoning, which is harmless but especially devastating for the particularly fair complexioned. I thought it only happened to moms who fed their kids gallons of carrot juice, but I have created an oompa loompa. A cute oompa loompa, but one nevertheless. I am starting to cut down on her vitamin A consumption, and we'll see how recovery goes. But, I think she's going to have great eye health. Or make really good candy, either one.
