I finally put a ton of pictures on my Smugmug site, now that I have a new computer and Photoshop Elements to play with.
So on April 10 I stuck my daughter in a dress and plopped her on the grass outside (it happened to be the first warm day in, like, her life). She was not really thrilled about the whole experience, so it was hard to get a picture of her smiling. Also, for future reference, white dress + bright sunlight = photography nightmare, with or without a cranky baby.
Eventually I coaxed a smile out of her.
I also took pictures of her sitting in a chair on the front porch of a little playhouse which is a model of the carriage house in which we live. Actually, it's better than the carriage house in the sense that we don't have a front porch.
And then a nap. The problem with preparing dinner in this household is that the people for whom I prepare dinner tend to take afternoon naps. And Auletta's dinner takes preparation these days. More on that to come.
