CAPTION: Stella is growing up fast and exploring all the new things she discovers with relish. "She loves to hug me!", her mother Armena says. "She feels very excited and happy when I hold her; it feels special". Thinking back over the past few months, she adds, "there was a time when I was eating something with cutlery, and Stella looked at me with adult eyes and then tried to copy what I was doing with a knife and fork. That was an exciting moment!" LOCATION: Volgograd, Russia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: From left to right: Arman Aharonyan, Armena Vardanan and Stella Aharonyan .
