This is Cosette at about 3.5 months. 

The summer that I brought her home, I was preparing to defend my masters thesis.  It was an odd summer, full of possibility and a close to an amazing program.  I was house-sitting for a dean at the time, and by house-sitting I mean I actually lived in her house for a year, and so Cosette and I would spend lackadaisical summer afternoons sitting outside enjoying each other's company.  I'd sit outside with my laptop and work on my thesis, Cosette at my side, quietly keeping me company.
