Baby It's Cold; stella

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.
