A special thanks to Richard Hallman for the amazing photos below. The last time you styled us out like this was back in Peru when Soleil was still in Stevie’s tummy (remember here). This latest round of photos are wicked! Props to Richard (below on the left) and his company, Freelance Imaging.
Your first trip to Hood River was a huge success. You really loved it up there, and of course everyone fell in love with you! But who wouldn’t? You’re the cutest, happiest, most mellow little baby in the whole world.
Your Uncle Richard couldn’t stop taking photos of you. Below is a small collection of what he shot. You’ve just turned 10 months old in these photos and you’re already melting hearts everywhere you go.
Despite our crazy family schedule, you always seem to be happy and ready for adventure. You have to be one of the most adaptable little babies in the world. We’ve never put you on any kind of schedule, so you just blend in to any situation.
You sleep when you’re tired, passing out just about anywhere. You eat when you’re hungry, and spend the rest of your time trying to either walk, or climb something. You’re very close to being able to walk, and you’ve already had several unassisted crawling summits, including Grandma Cheryll’s stairs (very impressive!).
You love to wave at people and say “hola” You love to clap your little hands when you’re excited. You absolutely LOVE the little baby you always see in the mirror. You two just stare at each other and laugh and laugh and laugh!
You also discovered toys for the first time on this trip. Not that you didn’t have a couple toys before, but while visiting your new little baby friends (Wyatt, Finn, Rosie, and Wynne), I think you got a real taste for toys! But just so you know, we’re not taking those back home to South America! Ok, maybe just one or two. But that’s it!
I really can’t believe how fast you’re growing. Already 10 months old. It’s going by too fast. I adore you my sweet little girl.
