Growing so fast!

I don't know if you've noticed, but I really love being a Grandma!
My sweet little Alaina is almost 6 months old and I can hardly believe how fast that time went by.
We are blessed that Laura and Aaron live nearby and we get to see and take care of her often.




This is a picture I took of her when she was about 1 week old. What a little sweetheart in that basket!




When she was over last week, I checked to see if she still fit in the basket. She does, but not for long!

She is adorable..what a sweet little face! Both pictures are just so great! You're right...she won't be in that one for long!

Our Harry loved to climb into baskets and I have a little collection of photos of him in various ones.

I love the comparison! Next time, she'll probably be playing with the basket on her little head! Too cute!

Oh my gosh....what a sweetheart. I think I've fallen in love. What a doll. And yes, they do grow up so quickly. And being a grandmother?========that's what life is all about in my opinion.

Are you familiar with Athe photographer,Anne Geddes? These photos would fit right into her collection. :)

She's a beauty, and it's such a blessing for you to enjoy being her Grandma!

What a sweet growth progress picture~of cours the subject is beyond adorable!
I agree that being a grandma is the bee's knees, even though mine are adults, it still thrills me to see them just like when they were babies.

What a FACE! She's certainly a chunk of baby sugar. I hope you were able to get her out of that basket without greasing her up!

Those pictures are awesome!! What a sweetie pie!

Beth said...

Adorable! What a darling way to show off a darling!
I was looking at Aaron's photo in my post and seeing his chubby toddler legs, then flashing forward to the taller, leaner boy legs of less than one year's difference. They change so fast esp. when they live across the country and I only see them twice a year! You are soooo lucky!

I can't believe how big she's gotten in 6 months! I thought she'd be fitting in that basket for at least a few years! ;)
