These pictures are so special to me because my grandpa suffered from a stroke in early December. Since his stroke this was the first time he wanted to hold Lauren. He would always talk to her and smile at her but he never wanted to hold her. I think he was just afraid and unsure about whether he could do it. Imagine my surprise when we walked into my grandparent's house on Easter Sunday and he held out his arms to hold her. She went right to him and my eyes stung as I watched the two of them interact.
Here she is in her dress. Shawn actually picked this dress out before she was born. I know it is black and Easter is usually more pastelly...but I thought she looked perfect.
This is a better picture of her dress, but as you can see she was NOT happy!
