Babies, Bows, and Butterflies 🦋

My daughter loves to explore everything around her. She is a virtual sponge, even at 4-months old. She is so alert and attentive, I’m always so shocked that her attention span is greater than 30 seconds.

So for our family activity, we decided to go to the Cockrell Butterfly Center in Houston. To let her see the butterflies and see if they might like her enough to try to land on her. If they did, I would hope that she wouldn’t try to eat one. These days everything is hand to mouth. Luckily, they only flew nearby and we never had to have a butterfly emergency. Tiny meltdown, yes. Eaten butterflies, no.

She got all the compliments. There was even another baby there that lost quick interest in the butterflies and only had eyes for her. Step back little Romeo… no boys allowed until she’s 45. Her bow looked like a butterfly and so she fit right in. Join us on our journey.

Outfit Details:
👗 My dress: Diane von Furstenberg (old)
👕 Her Outfit: Cat & Jack by Target
🎀 Her Bow: Little Lopers

Daddy, is that a fairy? No, Bug. It’s a butterfly. Tiny and beautiful… just like you.

She’s so alert and pays attention to every little detail. Here, Daddy points out a small black and red butterfly.

In the middle of a meltdown. It happens folks. She was not a happy camper after a while. So we had to take a break in the middle. Hey, babies cry – even in the midst of such beauty.

Happy again. Me and my family.
