Emma’s always looking for an excuse to “dress fancy,” so while Grandma and Grandpa Mandel were visiting us in October we had Cora’s baby naming. Emma and Henry were little angels and behaved the whole way through the service. (See photos from Henry’s naming here.)
I completely dropped the ball and took no pictures of Henry on his big day so I overcompensated with Cora and took a slew of pictures, both before and afterward in the yard.
I’m pretty sure that these are the very first pictures of Cora grinning at us. I’m not sure what, exactly, we were doing to get her going but she would occassionally crack a smile after staring at us blankly. A month later and she nearly always has a smile on her face and is quite the giggler, too!
