One of the perks of being an aunt is to dote on one's nieces and nephews.
This particular niece, the Rabbit,
looks exactly like her mother did 29 years ago--
minus the binkie in her mouth.
She is a most determined little soul and will NOT give up her binkie.

for most of the service, as good as gold.
Then we all went over to my brother's house for lunch,

This picture of the Rabbit and her mother is also a favorite for expression

The Rabbit is not a bit camera shy.
She smiles widely and happily whenever I bring the camera out.
