How can it really be January already? The holidays flew by here with a week of visits from both sides of our family. (I’m hoping to post some holiday recap photos soon.) What fun to watch the girls continue to build relationships with each of their cousins and assorted aunts, uncles and grandparents.
When I posted our holiday card photo in December, I promised to share some session outtakes and Nora’s 6-month portraits, which I took when Cricket kept running out of the frame.
The above gem speaks for itself. (You'll see that Nora was just learning to sit up...) Below, clockwise from left: I’m giving you my classic I’m-purposely-not-going-to-do-what-you’re-asking-me-to-do look while rubbing Nora’s back. Now I’m hugging my sister so hard she is about to tumble over. Hey, we’re a pretty cute pair of sisters. Whoaaaaa! (And into the frame dives Dad for the save.)
And here are a few of my favorites of Nora. Below: I love to crunch leaves in my hand, then try to eat them.
Below: I’m a great sport, especially considering a spider just jumped over my legs that was so huge my mom thought it was a frog until my dad set her straight.
