The Orbell Family

Some people are created to make beautiful little people.  Anna and Hamish are clearly among them. Meet Arthur.  At only five months old, Arthur blows the cuteness scale right out of the water.

But as yummy as this baby is, this post is not actually about him.  Or Aaron, for that matter, as nice as he is. It’s not about Kobe’s cute-as-anything smile. Or his puzzled and slightly grouchy face at the crazy woman with the camera making the strangest animal noises you ever did hear. It’s not about how cute he is when he cries. No, this post is about Leanne. …
