This Beautiful Child

This beautiful one year old child is my kids' youngest cousin, Maeve. We spent Christmas at her house, and my camera and I just couldn't get enough of her. Like her brother Elliot and sister Lily, she has conquered my heart - forever to be held captive by this Littlest Angel. I suspect you might be captivated too.

beautiful Maeve

She has very wise eyes in that sweet and beautiful face. She is very sweet. She will be a lucky lady someday to look back at these pictures her loving aunt created.
