52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 2

This picture of my niece was taken a year ago, when she was three days old.
She knew right away that she'd be destined to a lifetime of her aunt leading the charge of paparazzi watching her and her older brother grow. She already had the "please, no photos" wave down! (Do you love those wrinkles?)

This picture was taken this past weekend at her first birthday party.
I love how those little hands have grown and now move with so much more purpose. There was no hesitation getting that cake into her mouth.

It makes me so happy that we were able to share such a fun celebration with family.

  4. If I had thought about it, I would have taken lots of pictures of the boy's hands and feet. They are so adorable when they are little! Soon his feet will just be stinky.

  8. The "no photos please" shot is just great! And a child who eats cake with no hesitation is a child after my own heart. :)
