Natalie ~ 6 months

Ahhhh, baby love.  And I have a partial claim on this one–she’s my niece!

She’s so sweet and snuggly and perfect…and she’s developing an attitude that is shaping up just deliciously.

I was a little hung up on the black-and-whites/toasteds from her session (can you tell?!?) until the pink ball cap–she looks amazing in color, too!

Also, she bites her bottom lip, and it’s sooooo adorable!

Check out Larry–one of her first favorite toys at Grandma’s house.  He jingles.  He’s awesome.  I love including something that is significant to her.  When she is bigger and the baby toys have been tucked away in some long-forgotten place, we can show her this picture and tell her about how she loved it so when Larry would bounce his jingle-bell feet on her belly and kiss her sweet cheeks with his soft, fuzzy face.  Maybe even more important is that we will have preserved this memory of playing with her and Larry when she was small and squishy.

I’m lucky that I get to squeeze her often and I am in NO HURRY for her to grow up.  She can just take her sweet time.
