{A little Glam for the Holidays}

For Laela's 6 month pictures, I wanted to remember her chubby belly and rolly arms in a sophisticated baby-glam sort of way.  (Gosh, the English teacher in me absolutely hates the construction of that sentence, but the mom in me is quite proud of expressing exactly what is in my head!)  People are constantly telling me how much Laela looks like a baby doll--random people we run into at restaurants, the store, etc.  I think the photo on the right in particular captures this.  I just love, love, love these shots and though I know I say that often, I really do mean it this time (really, I do!).  And in case you're wondering, my good friend Shelley from Curly Girls Designs made this gorgeous fringed tutu.  Please check her out on etsy or facebook; she is seriously one of the most talented, creative women I know.  If you order anything (and you most surely will because her stuff is just too adorable to pass up!), let her know I sent you her way.

{What a Hoot!}

Wow, I just realized it has been quite a while since my last post.  And you faithful followers out there probably are wondering when I'm going to finish updating the blog, for as you can see right now, it is still a work in progress.  My main issue is that I keep changing my mind about the smaller details; I guess that happens when you encourage the creative juices full force.  The other big issue is time; we've been so busy with holiday fun and normal day-to-day stuff, that I just haven't made time to get on the computer.  So, until I finish my project, I'll leave you with a cute smile to hold you over.  This gorgeous hat was made by Sam at Happy Hooks Crochet; you can find her on etsy.  : )
