Dolly and Holly. #doppelganger
This past weekend our family didn’t do much, which is very unusual for us. Therefore, the main thing I did was take care of you.
You better believe, though, that it was crucial to keep my phone nearby so I could take some inevitably good pictures of you to share with the world on Instagram.
The first magnificent shot was when Dolly (the doll your Grandma sent you from California, in which your brother Jack adopted as he practiced for you) ended up near your play mat.
It just so happened you were wearing pink and white, just like Dolly. So I placed the doll right next to you, and the magical shot was born.
The rest of the world agreed that Dolly really is your doppelganger!
Then later that afternoon, you spit up on your outfit you were wearing, so Mommy helped you with a wardrobe change.
Belle of the ball.
She put you in the dress that Uncle Andrew and Aunt Dana sent you. My immediate thought when I saw you in front of me was, “belle of the ball.”
It instantly became one of my favorite pictures of you, ever. How could it not?
Look at your big smile. Look at the way you appear to be playing in your dress.
Seriously, just look at how beautiful and happy you are!
I know it’s only natural to see my own baby daughter as the prettiest little girl I’ve ever seen, but truly, you are one beautiful baby.
And it only makes sense that you would be, when I look at Mommy.
So while last weekend was seemingly uneventful overall, I was proud to capture two wonderful pictures of you:
One hilarious picture and one adorable picture.
And I see how that’s what kind of little girl you are proving to be already: hilarious, yet beautiful.
