Get ready for a crazy-big, MEGA post! I absolutely could not narrow these photos down…it was simply much easier to post them ALL! Oh, fine! I know this isn’t close to all of them, but I had to stop somewhere. I promise to show you the rest of them soon, Bailey!
Blakely is my cousin’s little girl – my cousin who is Carly’s (my sister) age… The funny thing is even though she’s such a young momma, it was ALL totally planned by the Lord from the day she was born. We’ve always known she was going to be a great momma. She knew it even more than the rest of us. So, she married young (also not by accident) and started her little family.
and THIS is pretty much how it’s gone ever since…
She pulls them in tight with her chubby little fingers and keeps their family knitted ever so tightly together…all the while with a sparkle in her eyes and a big toothy grin on her face. I can’t possibly think of anything better in the world.
Blakely is turning the big “1” soon! Of course, there’s a party in the works with lots of friends and family planning to be in attendance. I can’t wait to see what Blakely’s momma has planned for her fast-moving, happy-go-lucky little gal. I’m sure it’ll be quite the event. Just ask Blakely.
As I’ve mentioned more than once on this here blog, the best part of a 1st birthday session is getting to eat LOTS of cake. I’ll tell ya, Blakely does not agree with me. She’s not the first and probably won’t be the last. BUT, the worst part for her was just having all that goo ON HER! I think if she’d had eating utensils, like a big spoon, she might have been just fine. Seriously, what were we thinking not giving her a spoon? What kind of uncivilized people are we? Sheesh!
Uh oh…she’s got some on her toes….
I guess it’s time we cleaned up the VERY IRRITATED birthday girl and got rid of that HORRIBLE cake! What a mess!
She likes to “move it, move it”.
Keeping Blakely happy helped her momma and daddy feel good, too. Smooch, smooch.
and they all lived happily ever after….
