While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
So this little teacher is basically the cutest. See?
It's the sweet Miss Hazel, seven months, and working her way steadily towards crawling - and quite pleased with herself...Hazel does tend to be a bit more of a serious baby, although the pleased little grin above snuck out more than once. A sneaky bit of goofiness, not unlike her momma, who was blow drying the daffodils in an attempt to get them to open faster when I arrived. (This pleases me to no end - I find quirky moments like this to be the most endearing....)Snuggling time - giggles with momma & kisses with daddy - is seriously delightful. Might I suggest you look closely at the size of daddy's and Hazel's hands next to each other? The mini version next to the big version is quite remarkable.
Hazel sleeps in the crib that her momma also slept in as a baby. Daddy made a few modifications, and thus the crib was able to host this newest generation. Much of Hazel's nursery is decked out in Peter Rabbit, which can be seen a bit here on her sheets as we show off the heirloom crib. (What you can't see are Hazel's bloomers - also adorned with a Beatrix Potter bunny!)
So, for this little teacher, some words of excitement about the beginning of her story....
“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you.” ― Beatrix Potter
