This has to be the sweetest picture I’ve seen in a long time!

You know, this morning I was thinking about your posts from Michigan last summer and how you were on your babymoon. It’s hard to believe that was almost a year ago, isn’t it?

HEAB June 9, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I know – it’s crazy huh? I can’t believe she’s over halfway to being a year old. It’s all going by way too fast. Just trying to enjoy every minute. 🙂

Nora @ Natural Noshing June 9, 2011 at 12:17 pm

That is just TOO cute! What an amazingly sweet picture!!! I love Summers cute baby hands!!!!!

Nora @ Natural Noshing June 9, 2011 at 12:18 pm

oh, and very nice alliteration by the way! : )

zoe (and the beatles) June 9, 2011 at 11:45 am

nadia June 9, 2011 at 10:10 am

cutest EVER!

Hi Heather,

Got my BLW book in the mail yesterday. I know I said it was for my friend, but I opened it up and started reading it myself!!! So interesting. I don’t yet have my own children, but I work with preschoolers and it has some very helpful tips from a childhood development perspective. Thanks again for the thoughtful giveaway! 🙂 I would also love an update on Summer’s eating progress with solid foods!

Lovely little lady.
Proud parents photographing precious poses.

Summer sweetness sweeps the scene.
Seriously. So sweet.

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:20 pm

Thanks Abby,
I loved that. 🙂

Eden June 8, 2011 at 7:46 pm

I will not be a “conventional” blogger and write: “Presh!” or “Nice photo!”

We know I’m better than that.

So I’ll just let you know I want a pair of those socks

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I can do many things, but unfortunately, knitting is not one of them. 🙁

Bonnie June 8, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I love the photo and corresponding words…beautiful and so fun!. 🙂

Shannon June 8, 2011 at 5:52 pm

how amazing is that photo?? love it 🙂

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Thanks Shannon. I love it too. 🙂

Heather June 8, 2011 at 4:57 pm

It’s the little moments like that that are just so very precious and often overlooked at the time that are so important to have with your kids. (IMHO) Love it and the photo 🙂

melisssa June 8, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Great pic! love the socks! Also love pudgy baby fingers and wrists enjoy it, they grow so quickly!~

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Melissa, I know. Love those chubby little hands and wrists. 🙂

Jamie June 8, 2011 at 3:49 pm

OMG, those little fingers are amazing! Just the simple memory of tiny fingers wrapped around my index finger, instantly brings a smile to my face (and my heart)!

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 6:47 pm

I love her little hands so much. 🙂

Susan June 8, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga June 8, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Somebody is getting bit by the photo editing bug and I love the resulting shot! 🙂

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:38 pm

Thanks Averie. I downloaded all of Pioneer Woman’s actions for Photoshop and having so much fun with them.

Baking 'n' Books June 8, 2011 at 2:20 pm

HEAB – this looks like the cover of a book.

Fat baby hands are the best!

So sweet! Says…me.

CH June 8, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Love it!

lisampls June 8, 2011 at 12:39 pm

precious! hey mama, is Summer in cloth diapees? maybe looks like it in the pic?

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:44 pm

No, I tried Bum Genius cloth diapers and lasted…ONE DAY. Oh my gosh, the leaks were awful. Not a fan, but a friend told me I could have added an extra liner. Instead, I just went back to disposables. They work really well for us.

Ana June 8, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Sweet smile! 🙂

lindsay June 8, 2011 at 12:23 pm

striped socks and sunbeams remind of childhood and its simple sweetness. Summer is lucky to have an amazing mom.

Shauna June 8, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Awwww, what cute hand knit socks. Good job, Kath’s mom! I knit socks, too, but my babies are bigger. 🙂

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) June 8, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Ameena June 8, 2011 at 11:42 am

What a beautiful picture…I’m even more embarassed at the sad little pictures I take for my blog. With my iPhone no less!

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 8:45 pm

No shame in the iPhone pics. So wish I had one when out and about as my camera is great but tough to carry with me sometimes.

katie @KatieDid June 8, 2011 at 11:32 am

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 8, 2011 at 11:21 am

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 10:54 am

You will. 🙂

Kath (My Funny Little Life) June 8, 2011 at 9:48 am

Oh, I’m so happy you like the socks, Summer! When my mom asked me which colors she should take, I suggest pinkish with a little green, because I assumed you might like that, and I know she enjoyed knitting them for you a lot because she loves everything that is pink. And then she had the idea to add this little green border, and I said it would be lovely. I am so happy that you like them! 😀 (And also happy to see that you put them on immediately, and also that they are still a little too big so you’re going to have fun with them for some time. :))

HEAB June 8, 2011 at 10:54 am

Summer loves the socks so much. They are perfect. Many thanks to your mama for putting so much love into making them. 🙂

Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn June 8, 2011 at 9:45 am

<3 love

Jaime June 8, 2011 at 9:37 am

(to continue)….. so sweet! 😉
