Did I miss a Monthly Portrait for the first time? Yes, I did. The whole family was sick in bed together on the 27th. No photos were taken. Then the next day, I forgot, and the next day I remembered right at bedtime and had to use the flash. If I was more anal-retentive, this would be unacceptable in terms of style consistency. Thank goodness I am too tired to be concerned about it. So here we go: two days late, and after a hot, calming bath, the curls come out and the ducky robe is in full effect. Someone is in need of mom, snuggles, and b00bz. One moment she is focused on a calculator and the next she is climbing me like a tree. I don’t know if the color was thrown off for some reason, but her eyes look more greenish grey. I wonder if they are changing? Normally they are a striking blue. I’ll have to look closer in the daylight. Happy 13 months, little bug. That’s one year and one month. Big girl. Sorry we didn’t “celebrate” on the proper day, but we did spend the whole day with snuggles in bed with mom and dad and Charlie. It was nice.
