She was smiling and cooing while I was changing her last night. It was warm outside and the light was gentle. I wasn’t feeling like I needed to take more pictures of my dear little one, but why not? I put on her best outfit (seen here) and went out to the back yard. She is laying on a changing pad covered with black velvet for two of the photos and with a wooly mattress pad for the other. I love pictures of her in her environment with family and friends holding her. I also like pictures like these that take away other distractions and focus on her.
