Penelope ~ Almost 3 Months

The other day, my friend Jenny told me that she enjoyed seeing our blog and the photos, but she really wanted to see more photos of Penelope.  I admit I haven’t done a great job of posting photos of Penelope.  I have taken them regularly, of course, but the kids always seem to be doing more “fun things” when Penelope mostly, well, just lays there.  And I keep meaning to put Penelope in some cute outfits and fix up a nice background then take a lot of photos of her – but it just never happens.  So, this past weekend when Penelope was smiling and talking to me, I just laid her on the rug in the living room and started snapping photos.  Here they are. . . .
