happy haven


some days, and lately it seems to be almost every day, i cannot get enough of haven. she's at such a cute age. today i tried to teach her "happy birthday" and she's been walking around singing "happy, happy, happy." she has the cutest little voice and loves to sing and dance.

i made her dress out of a shirt i bought on the cheap when she was a fetus. i never wore it, but i love the fabric. i'm in love with it and the fact that she's also running around, spinning, and saying "dress! dress!"

this girl generally hates the camera, but she really worked it today. i think these pictures do her justice-capture the real haven. i mean, check her out in that bottom one-supermodel in the making! (the second photo is of her doing the sound a monkey makes.)

this girl melts my heart.

She's such a cutie. Love her poses. And I am amazed you just made that dress out of an old shirt. You are very skilled.
