Yesterday Jodi came over to help me with hair bows. She is an expert. :). We both agreed that we want to take an actual class so that we can be professionals for this. She made several hair bands and bows for Tori and we had so much fun doing it and dreaming of future embellishments. I really love BIG hair bows but Daddy prefers them smaller so I guess I will need to make them in both large and small versions. The “turban” effect band on her looks just so exotic though – I really love it! I layed her down on my bed last night and she looked so beautiful that I grabbed my camara and started snapping pictures. I fell in love with the end results. Seems that is happening every day though so I guess the truth is…I can’t get enough of her.
I think this one above might be my favorite.
She is just so regal isn’t she? Definitely queenly.
Please pray that Papa and Sweetie GET WELL! I am going CRAZY and so is my mom! I want her to spend a few days here next week getting to know her granddaughter!
Today Sarah and Brayden came over for a little visit. We let her break the “lock down” rule because she has been out of work (until today yippeee!), therefore Brayden hasn’t been in daycare and both have been fairly underexposed and healthy. I saw on the news this week that this is the worst flu (cold flu) season in the history of the US! That really frightens me for Tori so we are going to have to be so careful with her right now to protect her from getting this illness. I really hate lock downs and it is important to me that my family gets to see her so we are trying to “open the doors” but only when family members are SUPER healthy and not overly exposed to illness where they could be carrying but not contagious. Very frustrating for all of us though.
Sarah helped me position her for these pictures and it was NOT easy. (Sarah I think you will be impressed with how they turned out all things considered!) Susie had sent me a picture of a newborn wearing her mama’s wedding ring and I loved it! I tried to copy but you can’t exactly get a newborn to “pose” so we ended up with our own version. :). I love these pictures. Posing her with my rings just feels like a symbol of the covenant between Jim and I…and now our daughter. I told Jim last night that for the first time in my life I am willing to share him with another woman! What a strange thought that was…to realize that I am no longer the one and only woman in his life (okay short of his mom LOL). I am proud to share him with my sweet daughter though and I am excited for her because she is getting ONE INCREDIBLE DADDY! These pictures just stir my heart.
