youthful eyes

sometimes the way nola looks at me makes me think of this:

"He attended to her face first. He padded out the tissue beneath the eyes, just a little, and lifted the fold above them; now less of the white beneath the iris showed, and more above it, so that her eyes suddenly became wide, candid and innocent, and large in proportion to her head: they were enchanting, as kittens' eyes are enchanting, or indeed the eyes of the young of any species -- even of the crocodile."

I imagine that when she's older, she'll be a little annoyed that as a baby she made me think of Fay Weldon's The Life and Loves of a She-Devil. from the way she's crying right now, i think she's already annoyed.
