Lila - Age 1, Week 16 | Long Island Children's Photographer

This week's installment of my "52 Weeks" portrait project of Lila. One documentary portrait a week for all of her second year. This is Week 16.

Such a huge week for you! On Wednesday morning you woke up and decided to walk. You had been taking a step here and there before Wednesday, but Wednesday was the day you decided you were walking for real. You walked all the way across the room! You are still finding your "sea legs" but every day you walk more and more. You are so happy and proud of your accomplishment! It is so awesome to see!

Wednesday morning was also the last time you nursed. I'm a bit sad about this but I know you are growing up and I can't keep you as my tiny baby forever. I am so glad that we were able to have such a great nursing relationship for 15 1/2 months. I loved it so much.

We went to your cousin, Lucy's second birthday party on Sunday. You had a really good time!

I love you so much, Lila!
