Baby is beautiful.

However, I am concerned about "your" wrinkly cleavage!

Violet said...

boudica: I believe the painting's called Grotesque Woman or something to that effect.

the skirt: yes, sleepless nights will do that to a person.

The latter looks like Lewis Carroll's Duchess gone even worse.

Violet said...

eb: ah, but she still looks like her daddy.

small one: it's undoubtedly the ugliest woman I've ever seen in my life.

Baby does look amazingly like her dad but (no offence to him) cuter.

Violet said...

mtnw: my mum says the same, though I think I detect a negative tone when she says it!

I think you need some baby photography tips for the bottom photo :)

Violet said...

Anne: for the bottom photo I'd need not only adult photography tips, but also quite a lot of Vaseline on the lens!
