I chose a quaint, wooded spot in the neighborhood to take Nora's 10-month photos. But leave it to me to attempt those photos on a day when the ground was covered in mud and spiky sweetgum balls. We didn't last long—in fact, the session ended abruptly after a few minutes when Nora started eating rocks and Cricket took off for the creek. What did I expect? At least we had a few moments of muddy fun!
At 10 months, Nora is crawling, pulling up and babbling up a storm. She has a handful or two of words. She is always smiling and loves to play "This Little Piggy." And, of course, she'd follow her big sister to the ends of the earth.
I'm a month behind in posting portraits, so Nora will be turning 1 in just a month. I'm in denial.
