Our most recent development 'round here has been Lael standing from the ground up with nothing to pull up on. The picture above is her "I know I'm doing something really cool, but Mom, you're excited enough for the both of us, so I'm going to just give a coy smile as if it's no big deal" face.
And the picture below is her "What? I do this, like, all the time" face.
Last Friday was unseasonably warm in the upstate. I've missed taking pictures outdoors so badly. You can't beat the natural light and the hints of green. So, I got out one of the smocked dresses that my mom made for me when I was a baby, and we did a little impromptu photo shoot.
