The Alligator

“I’m a baby bear, you’re a momma bear, and Papa’s a papa bear,” says Iris.

“And what is the baby?” I ask.

“He’s an alligator,” says Iris, without hesitation.

 
 

We named him Akiva.

Strawberry Baskets

One of my favorite photo series with Iris was during last year’s strawberry season:

Le Conte de la Princesse de Fraise

The light was so golden that morning.

This year, I am so busy. I am unable to plan for golden hour.

I plopped Iris in the shade when I had a moment with just her and the camera.

How my little girl has grown!

Filling the Pool

We set up the pool.

As soon as the water was a couple inches deep, Iris said, “I want to go fimming! I want to go fimming!”

Her big plan is to have a pool party and invite all her friends and put the pool on wheels and push it around the block.

I think she spent too long watching the neighbor’s pool party.

 

The water was pretty cold.

Making Arms

I use eight-inch forceps to stuff wool into the arms and bodies of my dolls.

Iris borrows my forceps to stuff wool into her socks.

“I’m making arms,” she says.
