Miss M | Twenty-one months

Whew. My baby is officially getting close to two. She has started putting more words together, saying things like, “Found it!” and “Where’s Sawyer?” (her friend) and, “My turn!” She likes to sit on the potty but hasn’t quite figured out what it’s for. And this spring weather has certainly reminded us how much she loves being outside. She’s tries to ride the Strider bike and has learned proper technique for riding a scooter (but still needs help, of course). She has a huge personality and gets people laughing constantly. Gosh, I sure wish time would slow down.

See how she’s changed since last month.

This was the best photo I could get, because she wouldn’t stand still for a second!

Miss M | Eighteen Months

This little girl turned eighteen months yesterday, now making her closer to two than one. Where did my little baby go? She loves running, talking, and jumping, and mimicking her sister. She’s now going through the screaming phase and getting more strong-willed by the day. We love her to pieces! See how she’s grown.

Miss M | Fifteen (and Fourteen) Months

Miss M turned fifteen months old a few days ago – man, time sure does fly! I’m posting her fourteen month picture too, since I missed that one.

She’s a little person with a ton of personality, toddling around and making us laugh constantly. She gets into everything, screams when she doesn’t get what she wants, dances her booty off, scribbles on the walls, and has no fear of climbing onto big sister’s scooter and taking off down the driveway.

She’s catching up on the growth chart, weighing in at 20.5 pounds & 30 inches, putting her in the 40-50th percentile.

She’s a talker too, with probably 20-30 words in her vocabulary, although a lot of them sound similar and Mommy and Daddy are probably the only ones who can decipher most of them.

See how she’s changed here.

She takes off down the road, then turns around and gives us a mischievous smile and wave. Luckily we’re on a quiet cul-de-sac and always stay close behind.

Wizard of Oz Birthday

Little Miss K has loved Wizard of Oz for a couple of years, so it was natural that she wanted a “Dorothy” birthday party. I can’t believe this girl is already four years old! Her birth feels like yesterday. We had a great time celebrating with family and close friends My mom did a great job with the cake. I found the figurines for it on ebay – they were from the 2013 McDonald’s Happy Meals. I had fun designing the decorations and coming up with food ideas – there wasn’t much out there on Pinterest, believe it or not. Here’s what we did:

Yellow brick road: egg casserole

Over the rainbow: fruit rainbow

Bugels: tornados

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!: animal crackers

Ruby slippers: Hot Tamales

Witch’s broomsticks: pretzels

Tin man hats: Hershey’s kisses

Aunt Em’s fresh squeezed juice: You guessed it – juice!

Photo of the Day: My Girl

I haven’t been posting on the blog nearly as often lately, because I haven’t been taking nearly as many photos. We’ve been so busy with a new job, a move to a new house, and a new baby on the way, that I’ve barely had time! This weekend we had friends stay with us, so I had my camera out a lot. I just had to share this photo – a rare image with perfect focus, captured while Lil’ Miss K was jumping all over the place. More pics of the weekend to come!

Palm Sunday Portraits

Lil’ Miss K was hesitant to parade down the aisle for Palm Sunday in front of the entire congregation, but by the end of church and Sunday school yesterday, she couldn’t stop dancing around with her palm. She even told us how Jesus rode on a donkey and people laid down their palms for him. I love this girl and her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn.

Portrait Session | She’s three? How can that be?

This little girl is growing up way too fast. She’s a ball of energy with a lot of sass and a lot to say. She couldn’t be any cuter! I’ve had the pleasure of taking her photos since she was an infant, so I love looking back to see how she’s changed. Since she has a late fall birthday, we utilized our newly remodeled church, which has great natural light.
