An evening of firsts for Hazel Nina!

Last Wednesday was an evening of firsts for Hazel Nina!

First time she went to a restaurant (like mother, like daughter - four hands up)



First time she met her Uncle Michael and Aunt Estée -

Love at first sight


Makin' faces


First time she wore a dress


First time she wore boots (for five seconds)


Only a few more weeks and Hazel Nina will have a little cousin, Campbell Walker!!

  4. What an adorable first dress! And the little boots seem a sensible choice of footwear for the kind of weather you are experiencing...
    Sweet pictures of a sweet girl. I think my favourite one out of this set is the one where she sleeps with a smile on her face on her father's chest. There is something very touching about that one.

    1. Did I tell you that's how Hazel got her middle name? It goes back to when Margaret was little. Tom's mum wanted to be called "Nana" and Margaret said "Nina" - so the Nina is to honor her great grandmother. Needless to say, Tom's mother is thrilled.

  9. I love this post so much- I love the joy on everyone's faces. I can't wait to meet Miss Hazel Nina and give her a big cuddle. I also can't wait to meet the other guy that is coming soon- they are going to be besties for sure. We can sit together, holding them and talk about how beautiful they are, how smart they are, how perfect they are and then, when they start squawking, we can hand them back to their parents. :) xoxo

    1. Thank you, thank you! Well, Margaret answered your wish with the fb posting. I'm just glad it was blurry. I've aged years over the past worrisome months.
