Don't Let The Bugs Get In Your Mouth

2013-08-13 Madeleine 3

What, bored already?

Below, dad, mom and baby share a quiet moment. Son-in-law Brian pours a toast with Taittinger La Francaise, the official champagne of St. Louis Daily Photo (although C de Q has told me I could do better) and, last, Emily and Brian, Carolyn and I have a swig.

I read my granddaughter her first story at the hospital last night - of course, one of the Madeline series - and asked her to remember that the first city she heard about was Paris. We took some video on my DSLR. I don't do video but if I can figure out iMovie we'll have a clip soon.

So sorry about the lack of comments. I'm a bit preoccupied. And not just her - some intense stuff going on at work. What perfect timing.

Oh my goodness. The cutest! Warmest congratulations to you and your family. This little one is so lucky to have a snap happy grandpa to document her milestones. So sweet!

Proud Grandpa alert!

Brian looks more exhausted than Emily does!

It won't be long before that sweet little babe will be a star in many other photos.
