Little Lily on the Prairie

I'm still working on my niece Lily's red sweater, so I don't have any new knitting to show you. I thought you might like to see the professional photos my sister Hil (Lily's mom) had taken recently. We call her Little Lily on the Prairie in these photos because of the cute bonnet she is wearing.


I love this first photo because it reminds me of my grandmother, who is her namesake.



Lily is the most smiley, giggly baby I have ever met. When she smiles, it makes your heart flutter. She is now able to roll over from her back to her belly and it looks like she will start crawling any day now.

Speaking of birds, I'm excited to tell you that later next week I am going to the Sandhill Crane Festival in Lodi. I'm going on two different wildlife tours, and one is an early morning Delta birding cruise. You might remember my trip to see the cranes on my own last year. I'm excited to be participating in the festival this year!

Lily is just beautiful Stacy. I love how you descibe her smile making your heart flutter, what a wonderful statement.

The festival you are going on sounds like a lot of fun. We have Sandhill cranes here too, but I don't think as many as you.
