Grandma's Bling

My dad says he has two favorite two-year olds. I haven't inquired as to the rank because I'm afraid this sweet pea might come in number one!

I wouldn't blame him. I've always been so charmed by this adorable face. Bridget is my cousin's little girl. I'll always remember the first time I met her. Nicole and Brian adopted her a few weeks after Abbey was born. We drove over to meet her one afternoon and my Aunt Peggy said "Bridget's just a few days old now. Doesn't Nicole look fabulous?" My three-week post-partum body didn't think that was so funny :)

I digress. Back to these two awesome toddlers. They had a lovely afternoon together; I found it quite appropriate when I came down to the playroom and they had on their Great-Grandma Carol's jewelry.

Your pictures turned out so much better than mine! Look at their perfect little faces and hands. They're killing me. (Btw, I don't remember my Mom saying that, but I'd like to offer an apology 2 years and 4 months too late.)

Bridget asks about Abbey all the time - see you at the Christmas party? :)

Ashley said...

I can find the humor in it now :)

We will be there! I hope my mom's house can hold the chaos, I'm so excited!

I can't believe we never saw you while you were here. I've been waiting to meet the lovely Abbey for so long. Did they seriously just sit there holding hands? Too sweet.

I'm so glad you're back and posting again! I love all of your pictures - you are so talented! I'm sure it helps that you have adorable little girls to photograph, but all of your pictures seem to turn out so great.

Actually, you looked fabulous, too! I was with Nicole and Bridget when someon else told Nicole how good she looked for just having had a baby.
Love these darling pictures! It was a pleasure to spend a few minutes with all of you.
Looking forward to the party!

You really are a natural at photography. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a bad photo on this site. All of the pics in this post are fab...brings back so many personal memories of myself dressing up in my grandma's stuff. I too am happy you are back posting, wait, I think I've said that already!

Printing A Retraction: I actually thought it was pretty funny at the time as well. I never take myself too seriously.

Ok, I'm so jealous of the "look" of your pictures! What do you do to them? Can I call you some time for a lesson?

Ashley said...

Any time! I use photoshop on almost every picture I post on here.
