9mos old Stella is a living dolly! It took all I've got to refrain from squishing those abundant cheeks and fall into those baby browns. I still want to reach inside the screen as I post this. Although she offered up some great faces, none resembled a smile. But oh Stella; could you be any more precious?
I found myself conducting our session quite differently than others before her, especially the boys. There was a lot of whispering, cooing, and other sorts of gentleness, especially after little Stella startled when I laughed loudly. All this after the enthusiastic shouting, arm waving and mighty-machine-noise-making from Nolan's session. Fascinating stuff these little people are.
