Ms. Regina brings her sweeties to see me from time to time, and now we are adding GREAT to the grand babies. What a blessing! Baby Rayden and his Uncle Adam both did awesome.
Adam was hilarious and determined to not smile with his teeth showing until I bribed him with a sucker. Then I discovered why. The tooth fairy has been to visit him. And nothing is cuter than a child who has a gap or two in their front teeth. It’s kind of like a rite of passage, and we all slip right into telling our own battle stories of when we lost our teeth. One of mine was so loose that it hung by literally a thread. So my mom talked me into tying a string of thread on it and the other end on the door know. Then we slammed the door. Pretty dramatic for a first tooth, but the job was done. I don’t think the tooth fairy had been born yet, or else she didn’t know where I lived because I did not get rich off my baby teeth. And by the way, Adam smiled so much that he got TWO suckers, and TWO more for baby Rayden that I suspect were really for him.
Sweet Rayden was so easy going, and an absolute joy to photograph. He was super busy checking everything out, and man is he adored by his mama. Alhey can’t get enough of his sweet hugs, but she also shares this little cuddle bug with his great grandma who was so proud of him. Truly, children make the world go round, and a sweet baby’s smile can bring light to your life. Little Rayden smiles all the time, and he wasn’t bothered one bit while being held by Adam, who is a little boy himself. I think he’s going to have just the best personality ever.
Regina, thank you for sharing some of your joy with me last week. It was my honor to photograph these children you hold so dear. I wish you much health and happiness and pray you get to experience the thrill of being a grandmother for years to come. Love and blessings, Pat
