lately, doctors like to say that lucia has “dysmorphic features” and every time i hear that an urge swells up in me to get really close to their face and yell out “OH YEAH? well, your mom has dysmorphic features!”  is that inappropriate?

 this urge also swells when they label her “failure to thrive.”

does this look like she’s failing to thrive to you??

believe me, i know of few people who can thrive as beautifully as this girl does.
