yes, i really am posting some christmas pics in mid january, but you know, i would feel amiss not doing a little catch up. first up is charlie's 4 month portrait. we went away for xmas & i snapped these photos literally as i was supposed to be walking out the door, with the cranky husband & mirka waiting in the car, but i knew i had to capture charlie at 4 months, even if it was super rushed. not that charlie minded. he is one smiley boy. in the last month he has really discovered his hands and always seems to have them in his mouth. mirka tells him "no charlie, not eat them" and then wrenches them out of his mouth, but he simply smiles & stares at her. our happy little harper. charlie's xmas star arrived from paper boat press & i loved finding a spot for it on the tree next to his big sister's. the bright red xmas stocking behind charlie is vintage darling.. it was his daddy's before him. it's really cute & looks like a paper cut screenprint to me, but i'm no expert. how do you like my gingerbread reindeer? i bought the cookie cutter from capital kitchen, but getting the cookie out of the cutter with those fiddly antlers was no easy task. tricky.
