o holy night...

actually it was during the day
and
ended like this
but
the in between stuff
was so sweet
this little munchkin came back for her third photo shoot
~remember~
where she's supposed to be sleeping
so I can get some posed photos
~~
anyhow
this sweet baby love has decided that at my house
in my art studio turned photo studio
~kind of sort of~
she is not going to miss anything
I do or say
so instead of sleeping
we talked about christmas
and
she was amazed
when I told her that santa can actually fit down the chimney
and
then when I went into the whole rudolph and his red nose
and
how the other reindeer used to laugh at him
~~
well
she became very concerned
about how they didn't let him join in any reindeer games
then
we talked about how fast this month has been flying by
and
even though math is a little difficult for her right now
she tried really hard to count on her fingers
just how many days are actually left before
heaven and nature sing
after our session was almost done
and
she'd had enough of the pointy eared hat that I'd made her wear
and
right before her mommy wrapped her all back up
she decided to surprise me with a few lines
from
"o holy night"
in only a way a baby can
~~
gosh
I had so much with her
that I've decided that even if she never sleeps for any her photos
I will adore her just the same

    Stay warm in ALL that snow you received. Let's just hope Southern WI doesn't get overloaded with snow like that one winter....was it last year or the year before?

  25. Your job, having such delightful times with children, helps erase all my years of PTSD of working with sexually abused children. What a precious gift your give parents with memorializing their sweet babies in this way - plus you have to feel wonderful after spending time with these angels.
