the elusive cousins picture

At the request of several grandparents, we finally got all the Baker cousins together for a picture. The last time we did that, Maya, Mathew, and Amy weren't born yet. This picture was taken in front of the Baha'i Center in Urbana at Heidi and David's going away potluck.

Here's that beloved picture taken on the farm in 2001.

I'm lovin' the excitement on Maya's face in that top picture! :)

Ohmigosh what a great bunch of pictures! I love the heights of all the girl cousins in that one! It's so perfect! Georgia's ballet class looks like lots of fun. She is turning into such a performer all of the sudden. Maya always looks like she's just happy to be here.

Here's an update: Lucy's going to start school at Crystal Lake Montessori! I'm so excited! This is such a big change. Call me soooon!

A little context: those expressions in the first picture can at least partly be attributed to Grandma Felty, who was performing Antics. "Okay, everybody -- look over that way!" "Okay, now that way!" "Say Pie!"

The phrase that comes to mind in looking at this whole sequence of recent pictures is "an embarrassment of riches". You are all so very blessed to have each other. And yay for Grandma Felty's antics - they produced great results.

I second Suzanne's comment. A beautiful bevy of bouncing buddies.
