at 18 months.

Every time this sweet baby toddles through our backdoor– often in pajamas and with chocolate on her face– we have to remind ourselves that she is an anomaly. That most babies aren’t this dimpled and calm and delicious. That our own screaming beauties required 9 months of illness and 2 years of no sleep. And that I’m getting old. But still, she makes babyhood look easy and beautiful and Grace-ful. And she makes me ache for just one more.

goodnight, sweet girl.

    Oh I love your child portraits, they are so touchable and alive.

    Yes, let’s get together. I’m not sure that I really know all that much, but there are a few things I’ve learned in the past year that I didn’t know before, at least as seen through my eyes.

    These are simply beautiful. I am amazed at your talent. Baby Grace is a doll! I like to look through blogs to see how well people take pictures and you are by far my favorite.

    She is false advertising. Most babies are a lot more work 🙂 Great job! I am glad you are still posting some of your work.
