If you read my blog regularly, you may remember Sweet Caroline from early in the summer. Well, this weekend while her parents traveled to Chicago so her dad, Rus, could run the marathon, Caroline spent the weekend with her grandparents. And because we don’t have grandchildren and love Caroline like our own, they shared her with us this afternoon. Caroline is the best baby. She played, giggled, and chased our cat, Puddin’. Puddin’ didn’t let her get too close, but that didn’t deter Caroline!
Caroline’s mom, Adrienne, sent a tutu so we could snap a few pictures while Caroline visited. There are some photographers who specialize in children and do amazing portraits. I’m not one of them. But, I did have fun with Caroline today and I think we got some great shots.
I love pictures of babies in funky hats. So this afternoon while Caroline napped, I sent Grandma Barb on a mission to find some funky hats for us to use in pictures. Since Barb is a shopping queen, this mission was right up her alley. And she found the perfect hat. At first Caroline wasn’t really sure about the whole hat idea – but she warmed up to it quickly. Pun intended. It was much too hot to be wearing a hat so after a few shots . . . she was done!
Adrienne, hope you like the hat. It’s Caroline’s birthday present from Rusty and me – along with a matching pink sweater. Hopefully, Caroline will like the hat a little more when it gets cold!
