{pretty, happy, funny, real}

The perks of a Sunday birthday... a special birthday blessing! This was a beautiful moment.

This little girl is always happy when she is gazing at her biggest brother.
See that little finger of hers? Yep. He's totally wrapped around it!

Grammie always sends wonderful gifts, but Grammie's gifts are always heavy on the tape making the tiniest of boxes akin to Fort Knox.

As a special birthday favor, Shortcake asked for her baby sister to wear her favorite outfit (from her sweet godparents). Look at those cute puppy toes! Look at that sad, sad face. She really didn't want her picture taken.

Check out more pictures of contentment over at Auntie Leila's place!

  1. Those baby pictures are the sweetest thing I will see all day! The smile for her brother is just awesome! And even the unhappy face is cute with puppy toes. Way to go, Mom! Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of your blessings!

  2. I agree the baby pictures are the sweetest :)

  3. Love the birthday blessing the best.

  4. Aaaawwww she is getting those great little baby rolls. I love those rolls of baby goodness!

    My heart skips when I see her tiny. And such a familar look as my babies have been.

    If only...

    God bless!

  5. Yes, a Sunday birthday definitely gives you an advantage for blessings!

  6. Love all the pictures!

    Shortcake came to mind when we found that outfit, while looking for something in the colors of Cupcake's nursery. I had a feeling she would like it! I'm glad that it fit in time for her birthday party, even if Cupcake is less than thrilled with it! lol! :)

  7. Oh, she didn't mind the outfit... it was my photo shoot that she was annoyed with! Because I had to set her down and hold something else besides her.

  8. I'm just teasing! I know how much she hates for you to set her down!! But thank you for taking pictures of her in it, just the same! I MISS that little Goddaughter of ours, and all of you!

  9. Look at that happy baby! Just beautiful!

  10. Oh Charlotte your children are so beautiful. And they look so joyful!

  11. I love the pictures of the older kids with Cupcake. So special!
