B is for Bubby: The Alphabet Project

My friend Lorri over at Mac and Cheese Chronicles invited me to join in an alphabet photography project this year. Stop by her blog and read all the details. She's such a sweet friend, she's letting me play along, even if I'm late.

So here's to catching up. . .

B is for Bubby's soft Brown eyes:
This was taken with our Nikon D40. A bit clunky to lug around, but I love the close ups I can get. To capture their little fingers, lips and nose. Oh, those eyes and that sweet little smile, you melt my heart little man.

The Making of an Angel

Remember, WAAAYYY back in December, when there was talk of Sugar Plums Dancing in our heads? Oh the joy of Nutcracker. Princess, had a delightful time. Since January is the month that we celebrate the birth of our beautiful girl, I thought this tribute was a nice follow up.

Step 1: Hair. Can it be that my beautiful little girl no longer needs help with the ballet bun? I don't know if I should cry, or be over the moon happy with this new independence. I'll get back with you on that one. ;)

Step 2: Make-up. So fun on day one, but by the end of the show the glamour had worn off. She was pretty tired of scrubbing the gunk off each night.Step 3: Getting into the costume. Putting on the hoop and dress. Look closely at her face. She has a mesh bag over her head. It keeps the stage make-up off those beautiful white gowns. I'm telling you, the ladies that run the show are amazing. They have thought of everything, down to the tiniest detail.Steps 4&5: Halo and wings.And voila. . .Our Princess is an Angel. (That is Grandma with our girl.)We already knew this. . .It all started here. . .

Happy Birthday Princess!
