I got to meet this little lady right before her first birthday, and what a joy she is! She was happy to show off all of her favorite activities, which include reading out loud to herself, scooting around to knock over towers of stacking cups, having long conversations with herself in the wonderfully huge mirror in her parents’ room, singing, clapping, laughing, flying high in the air with her Daddy’s help, giving pats to her dog, and of course, being completely adored by her parents. And she did it all while looking fabulous in her black, gray and hot pink ensembles (one of which has a Love Bug on it — don’t worry, I’m not giving random nicknames to other people’s babies).
She’s at that wonderful age where she’s still got her round baby cuteness: the pudgy little hands, creases at her wrists, and have you noticed those cheeks? Best cheeks ever. Soon enough she’ll be off and running, burning off all of her baby softness as she grows into a lean, mean toddling machine. I’m so glad I got to capture her right before she heads into that stage! And guess what? I get to see her again and meet her grandma tomorrow. Have I mentioned how much I love my job?
