Little Red

Hey, baby girl. You're a few days shy of 12 weeks which was one of my favorite ages with your brother. The instant smiles are as good as any drug on the street. I think you're going to be my chatty girl with the way you coo and sing at me.

I love your sweet little toes and the way you grab my hand and hold on tight when I tuck your pacifier back in.

The jury is still out but I think those eyes of yours that look so much like Grandma Mary's are going to be brown like the rest of us girls. No matter the color you are going to stop 'em dead in their tracks.

All my love,

Mama

She is so amazingly precious! Congrats! I have so much respect for you being a mom of two and still finding all that energy for your beautiful projects as i'm still adjusting to mothering one spunky 4.5 month-old gal! All the best :)

The light is great in this photo. I can't quite get that effect myself. Do you mind sharing what your settings were and what you used for a light source? Thanks!
