Fast friends

Here's Stella with her first best friend, Samantha Wright. At least that's how we'd have it.

Sam is the daughter of our good friends Jim and Amanda that live across the street. Sam is also the world's most perfect, calm and cooperative child. The kind that just wakes up peacefully in her crib and will stare at the ceiling quietly until you come to pick her up.

Stella, on the other hand, just spent all of Thursday wrestling with her mom every time she got tired or hungry. Markana swears Stella tried to punch her today. You'd also think her crib collapsed by the way she's been announcing the end of her naps.

Regardless, they make a pretty cute combo.

Oh, and how about Stella's corduroys? Stylin', as usual.

New Hat

No real news to report, except that Stella got this rockin' new hat today. It's been quite chilly in Nashvegas, and babies need hats that match their favorite pets.

Ok, seriously... (pt 2)

I naturally thought on August 5 that a cuter blog picture would never exist. Clearly, I was wrong.

So what if this pose is just a left hand's brief stop between floor and mouth? It could just as easily be her headshot for the jacket cover of her Pulitzer Prize-winning third novel. Or the poster for her speaking tour after winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Of course, she'll have to put her acting career on hold...

Stella celebrated her 3-month birthday with a trip to Walden Farm where she got her first look at pumpkins, chickens, pigs, ducks, goats, cows, and turkeys. Mmm...delicious.

What did she learn? That her right hand tastes great no matter where she is.
