When I saw her arrive at church with her parents in this little dress and hat...I gasped...and knew I had to beg her mom, my friend, Jessie, to bring her over so I could take pictures of her in this darling ensemble. This is little Elli, who is all over my newborn gallery, and whose shocked face is on my rates page of my website. When I started editing these pictures, it just reminded me of how fast little people grow, and how important it is to capture images of this time. It's such a pleasure to see them grow and learn and have blossoming personalities.
She is as sweet natured as she is adorable...which says a great deal about her character.
Somebody has her mommy's big eyes.
Little hands that pick up anything off the floor and pop it into her cute little mouth. Her mom found her gnawing on some tile grout the other day.
And this is Noah, Elli's older brother, who is very close in age to Jasper. As they have traveled through the two's Jessie and I have compared notes at times on the challenges, and a time or two, considered putting our boys in a padded room together:). Thankfully, we are seeing their great personalities shining away as we head towards the 3's.
My assistant, Ruby, was making Noah laugh and giggle here.
What a great little guy!
Here is Elli with her mom. She loves that mom of hers...for good reason!
This picture is with Grandma Karen, who was the knitter of the dress and is the adorer of her grandchildren. She actually reminds me of my mum, with her fervent belief that nothing compares to the grandkids.
You have good reason to be proud, Karen!
Jessie, thanks for coming over and letting me play with your beautiful children!
