When my sister Tara and I were younger, we had nicknames for one another: Cocoa Butter and Coocoo Pappasin. I feel it is now time to pass this latter nickname onto my daughter, Alexandra. For she is, in a word, a kook. You might have gotten a smidgen of that from this post. I may be a bit biased, but I believe she is one of the goofiest, happiest, silliest babies I've ever known. Upon first acquaintance, she may seem all sugar.
But upon closer acquaintance, the real spice comes out.
Look out, world.
