We experienced some unexpected late-fall sunshine today so my daughter and I hustled to one of my favorite parks after she came home from school. A couple of months ago, she turned 10 years old. I’m still adjusting to the baby of my babies being in the double digits, but like it or not, here we are! I learned something new about her today when I was helping her get ready for the shoot: she gets frustrated with her wavy hair and wishes it was straight. Enter the flat iron! Guess what I’ll be doing in the morning now. This little chickadee was a contagiously happy baby so we often called her our Sunshine Girl or Smiley. We had a great time this afternoon romping in the park, throwing leaves, chatting, and basically enjoying some one-on-one time together. I truly adore and cherish this little girl!
