      I’m loving her little mohawk that shows up in a couple of the 3 month pictures. Cute idea to take the pictures in the same setting all the way up to 2 years. I wonder what you’ll do with the collection of 24 when it’s finished!

    She is so adorable and looks right at home in that eames rocker. My son is 22 mos old and a lot of fun these days…but I do miss having a newborn around the house. Enjoy every minute — it goes by so quickly!

    She’s very cute…. I have a question for you, and I totally understand if you never get around to answering it…but the rocking chair? Is that the fiberglass or the molded plastic kind? And are you happy with it?

    Hi! Your blog is lovely :O)

    I just had to comment on this post, because this is my first time stopping by your blog, and my little girl is also named Eleanor Anne (but with an e)! She’s just turned 15 months old. Time flies!

    Your little girl is so precious. Enjoy these early days!
