Portrait Project



eloise: You have been a busy girl this week. You are so close to walking.  You’ve taken several steps here and there and walk along side the walls and around the dining room table, holding on with one hand. You are so close! You also are enjoying playing with your toys for longer periods of time on your own. This picture was of you zooming your cars around the dining room. I captured your sweet smile as you picked up your car to show me. This was also the first time I got pig tails in your hair. My, you are growing up so fast!

Eloise’s Monthly Photo

“When the day that lies ahead of me, seems impossible to face, when someone else instead of me always seems to know the way. Then I look at you, and the world’s alright with me, Just one look at you, and I know it’s gonna be a lovely day…”

(this song was in my head a year ago today as I labored for 23 + hours and pushed my sweet baby girl Eloise into this world. The lyrics have stuck with me and every time I hear this song it reminds me of my beautiful girl. Happy Birthday Eloise Harper! Today truly is a “lovely day”).
