My little Doll

Thank you all for you kind comments! Sorry I have not had time to reply to each person. We are slowly adjusting and catching up on sleep when we can.

I am sorry I forgot details last time!!! Her name is Arabella (after her mama:), Bella for short and she was 7lbs 13 ozs! We thought she was going to be much bigger but she surprised us! She was 20 3/4 inches long.

I thought you guys might like this photo!! This is my not-nearly-finished-at-all house for my little wooden model guys and I thought it would be perfect for a photoshoot with tiny Bella! She slept through the whole thing!

The couch on the right is one that was in my grandmothers house and I remember playing with it as a child. The other two chairs on the left were made by me. I think this ones going to be blown up and put in my workroom!

Bella seems to be quite the sleeper so I am hoping to be back to following blogs and making miniatures soon! Hugs to all, Ara


  1. Ara, Bella is beautiful, the pic is wonderful and the fact the she is a sleeper is a great piece of news ;o) Enjoy her, these early moments are so quickly forgotten and it's so sad. They grow up in a moment. I thought it was just a trivial motto but it's true. Held her tight, touch her as much as you can, smell her like a sweet and spend as much time as it is possible with her. I couldn't spend much time with my baby and I still regret it.
    Hugs to you and a kiss on the top of Bella's head, Rosanna

  2. oh my gosh Ara- that is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Welcome to the world sweet Arabella ( which is the sweetest name ever!)

  3. Oh, Ara, I love her name, Arabella! So beautiful for a beautiful little girl and she already knows how to pose for a fabulous photo!!!


  4. Ara, what an amazing photograph! Such a little doll. Rosanna is correct...the time will be fleeting...cherish and revel in every special moment of it. I look at my 6'4 son and think it was only yesterday he was no bigger than a loaf of bread. Again, congrats!

  5. She's beautiful! Great shot. Congrats to you!

  6. She is such a little beauty Ara! Bella is the perfect name for her! I love your photo shoot!! Too perfect for the miniaturist who is also a new Mom.

  7. Bella is a beauty! maybe you will luck out like I did and have an angel for a baby, my daughter was perfect till she hit the terrible twos LOL.

    Congrats and the photo is Awesome :)


  8. Congratulations Ara ! what a beautiful baby , surely the finest miniature you have ever created :0) I love that photo and am so happy for you and your family.

    I love this picture and I agree with Rosanna:
    Enjoy she will be grown up before you know it.
    Love, Lara

  10. John says we know your dollshouse mad but you should really buy her a cot lol!!!!!he he! Bella is beautiful , like her name, and Im so so pleased shes a sleeper. My girls all were and it was wonderful......then the boys came and ahhhhhh, havnt slept since! Wish I could be close to give her a cuddle, make sure you give her a big one from me! Take it easy and rest, you can think you are fit enough to start doing lots and end up drained from overdoing it, so make use of people offering to help you out! Kate xxxx

  11. You will have so many wonderful photos of your beautiful daughter - you are such a talented photographer!

  12. So many great things about this post but the Greatest is of course Arabella :), her name, how she looks when she's sleeping and how she co-operates during a photo shoot :).

    Ara, that photo of yours can be sold commercially. As far as I am concerned , work of art! I think it will look absolutely wonderful in your workroom. I really love this picture. You, my dear, is a great photographer.

    And don't be worrying about replying to us in comments. What will be great will be a postcard of this picture signed by you, Ara and your baby ;).

  13. What a beautiful baby and a fun blog! I'm so glad I found you today!

  14. Ara I am so sorry I am late to this...I couldn't comment and know you must be inundated with emails so didn't want to add to the pile.

    I am absolutely thrilled for you both. Arabella is so precious. I just love the photo you did...special just using a dollhouse but even more so using such personal items.

    Like everyone else has said...get lots and lots of rest...everything else can wait. Enjoy every is a cliche but it really does fly by

    Lots of love to you all xxxx

  15. She is absolutely beautiful and that photo is too sweet. Congratulations!
