circus training

It all started one day in church. We noticed a baby, seemingly younger than Soufflé on account of size, able to perform the feat of standing with minimal support. The baby’s hands gripped her mother’s index fingers, one on each side, and thus, pulled herself up to stand on her mother’s lap!
