Pretty in Pink!

Hello everyone,
       It is Pink Saturday so it gives me a good excuse to share some photos I took a few days ago of our youngest granddaughter who is celebrating her 3rd birthday on Sunday.

Lila can't wait until she is old enough to go in ballet. I was excited to find this pink ballet dress as I knew she would love it.

I love little hats on little girls.
Practicing her moves.

Oh! Sugar and spice and everything nice!

Lila has the cutest way of talking and you should hear her giggles! Three is such a fun age.

 Happy birthday sweet  Lila!

I am joining How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Cue the "Ahh's..."

What beautiful pictures of a beautiful young lady. I miss that age so much. When my niece was little, she used to pose and dress up for photos all the time. It was so much fun! Those really were the best days.

Oh, what a sweet, sweet little girl. She reminds me so much of my 4yo niece who just started ballet this past year. Her recital was so precious!

I know you're going to love it when she's in ballet. Can't wait to see more photos of the little sweetie.

She is just adorable and so very pretty in soft pink.

Truly I think soft pink is THE COLOR for little girls of all races. Lovely color to all.

Have a sweet day!

Marti McClure said...

She is so adorable! And you've done such a great job with your photos. Happy Pink Saturday! ~Marti

Linda said...

Okay, Carolyn, m'dear! Here's what I think: the only diff between your photography and that of a professional photographer's: They're paid and you're not!!! Lol :-) Are you ready for a new career?!

What BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL pics of your sweetie pie granddaughter! You are so blessed. And, of course, she is, too! I am sure she will treasure these so much when she is older. What a gift to your family!

When I saw the pink dress, I immediately noted that it looked quite familiar. I'll send you a pic so you can see for yourself! Again, too much in common. Midge keeps saying we were separated at birth! Hahah A wonderful compliment to me!!! :-)

Enjoy your Pink Saturday!


Anne said...

Oh my gosh she is so sweet.Reminds me of my daughter at that age.My daughter started taking ballet at 3.She is now 12 and still loves to dance.I remember my daughter in her fist ballet classes.I wish I would have recorded them.If you have a chance to do that with your grand daughter do it.For yourself and her.I regret not doing that.

Your granddaughter is a real sweetie, and the photos you took could go straight into a magazine, they are great. I'm sure she loves coming to your place to dress up and have tea parties!

Rowan said...

What a sweet little girl - and I love her hat. I hope that she has a very happy birthday.

WendyBee said...

I had no sisters, and I am the mother of 3 boys. I secretly cherish the hope for a granddaughter (who lives very nearby and needs to be tended frequently). In my imaagination, she looks just like Lilla, and giggles and loves stories and tea parties and baking cookies, and walks on the beach collecting sand dollars and sea glass. Thanks for helping me dream.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos with us!

Linda said...

Me again, Carolyn!

Did you knit the pink sweater and cap that Lila is wearing?! I wouldn't be at all surprised if you did. If so, I will send you my measurements, but you'll need a lot of wool!!! How many sheep do you have???
