My perfectly beautiful and giggly little niece turns one today. Phew! Only one year old. Stay little and happy my dear niece. But I can’t wait to watch you grow and see what wonderful things you will do in this world. Happy Birthday Ella Williams.
Last week I had the pleasure of hanging out with this cute, funny, and very clever girl. We were non-stop talking, playing, and giggling. At one point I tried to check my e-mail and she says, “Hey, why are you not smiling and laughing?!” So true. She makes me smile and laugh, like all the time. She created many adventures for us to go on. And I decided to bring my camera along for one. Think these do justice to her charm and vibrant personality.
And what makes this adorable girl even more lovable? She is my babysitter’s baby (well, not my current babysitter, but my babysitter growing up)! Oh, how we grow so fast…
We have many (many) cousins in the midwest. I guess that tends to happen when your grandfather comes from a family of 9 siblings?! Hot dang! Here are a few favorite shots of the smallest ones back in Minnesota.
