Newborn sessions are one of my favorite things ever. Little bitty toes. Itty bitty fingers. So much sweetness! And little Liahna's session was an extra special one for me because her mom and I have been friends since 4th grade! It's so hard to believe we've known each other for almost 20 years.
Liahna is such a sweet, quiet little thing with a head full of gorgeous dark hair! A perfect early Christmas gift for her mommy and daddy!
I love to cook and bake. It is one of the most calming and fulfilling things for me. When I was little, I would just sit and watch both of my grandmothers cook up these delicious meals that everyone loved, and I wanted to be just like that. I took over most of the cooking in our house by the time I was 11 or 12. My mom did not inherit a love of cooking, so I'm pretty sure she was grateful that I did!
Now that I am a mom, I strive to pass on that same joyous feeling of cooking and baking for others to my own children.
This Christmas Eve, we baked lots of dessert goodies for the family. I managed to get all four of my medium-sized people in the kitchen for one recipe, and once it was done, the older two ran away, but Ava and Ally stayed on to help with the rest.
It made me so incredibly happy to just watch them as they measured and mixed and laughed and giggled. It was a perfect gift. ♥
