We would like for you to meet Elise's bestest friend...
That's Alex. He's quickly become Elise's most cherished and adored fuzzy friend :) She got him for her birthday from her grandparents and hasn't looked back since. She won't take a nap without him (or her other small stuffed dog "woof woof"), which has been AWESOME. Now she has a routine (we tuck Alex in on one side of her, woof woof in on the other, and cover her with a blanket) and she hardly cries...or get this, she doesn't cry at all! She will just go to sleep. Thank you, Alex!
The first thing she does when she wakes up in the morning or after a nap is say "Aleehh, Aleehh" (which is, of course, in her language...Alex).
Oh, Alex, how we love you too.
She will also go all over the house looking for Alex if you ask her "Where is Alex, Elise!?" Cutest. thing. ever.
I decided to do a quick impromptu shoot the other day with E and Alex...so that we don't forget this cute stage of Alex adoration.
(please excuse the bad lighting...it was impromptu and later in the evening...my natural light was pretty much expended and I didn't want to forget to do it the next day, so I broke the golden rule of no shooting without natural light. ahhhh well)
That involved pretty much no coaching from me...she just loved on Alex willingly. They make a cute pair, wouldn't ya say? :)
