And then…a miracle! I am amazed looking at her session images that the pictures I have are of the same girl that wouldn’t even step foot in the vicinity of her cake. She was my best cake smasher ever. By the end of Rachel’s session she was tearing into her cake with both fists. Turns out all she needed was a little taste. What a riot it is to see this timid princess go after her cake so ferociously. She was still pretty dainty with the eating (not a lot of frosting on that cute little face), but look at that mess!
Job well done Rachel! That is definitely something to proudly add to your baby resume. Cake smash….check!
There are so many reasons to celebrate the birth and journey of this beautiful little girl. For me it has been getting to know her mother. You don’t expect that work will bring you friendships. But it has and Afsi is one of them. It has been a long time since I have had a baby in my home and I needed a reminder, someone to refresh my soul. Afsi brought me her little princess and in doing so has changed me for the better. Through knowing her (I know this is making her cry) I have remembered how wonderful it feels to step outside my little comfort zone and serve another. I have learned to think and feel deeply about others. There is a quote I love by George Eliot. He says,”Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul to another.” That about wraps it up. I know I just hijacked Azalea’s post in order to share my feelings of admiration for her mother. But someday I hope she sees this. And that she will celebrate being the daughter of such a remarkable woman.
