baby goes to church

she was a little alien in a pink poofy dress.


with tights too. it was very awful.


it’s never too early to learn that beauty requires pain. reuben’s visiting too. he’s learning the same. i’ve been giving him my version of microdermabrasion. maybe it’s not so micro, but he’s tough. and i’m entirely void of natural human sentiment. we make great progress.


now that i think about it, i should have been a dentist. back when they doubled as barbers and a lot of blood was involved.

    Your pictures are always so good. What kind of camera do you use?

    angela – here is an old post about my camera when i first got it. and it does take lovely pictures, but only in natural light. i’ve almost gone mad this winter, only being able to take pictures between noon and three. crazy.

    I just showed these photos to Aunt Raija who said the yawn reminds of her of how our Grandma Nyborg used to yawn and also the face she’d make when she talked and cooed at babies. So maybe she was mimicking Great Great Grandma right then:)

    Grandma Jean said she looks just like me when I was a baby.
