Photo of the Day: Two and Three Quarters

My Lil’ Miss K is just 4 months away from being 3 years old. Hard to believe she’s closer to 3 than she is to 2. I love how much she talks – we have real, back-and-forth, conversations all the time. I also love some of the words she mispronounces – “chlocate” instead of “chocolate,” “hangaber” instead of “hamburger,” “cup-ul-der” instead of “cup holder.” I need to write all these cute little things down so I never forget. I see the wheels turning in her brain every day as she learns something new. Love it!

See how she’s changed since her last photo 4 months ago. (She’s still a tomboy who loves her tennis shoes and hates her hair in piggy tails.)

Photo of the Day: 2.33 years old

After posting photos of Lil’ Miss K monthly for the first two years of her life, I decided to switch to recording once every three months. But then I forgot…so now we’re doing once every four months. My, how she’s changed since her second birthday!

Speaking of change, I’ve been a little MIA lately. Between a vacation to Peru, a new job, several portrait sessions, and preparing for Relay For Life, I’ve been busy – to say the least! And each one of those deserves it’s own blog post. Stay tuned!

Hello Kitty Toddler Birthday

Since Lil’ Miss K loves kitties and doesn’t watch cartoons, I chose Hello Kitty for her birthday theme. We kept it pretty simple this year with immediate family, simple decorations, and an easy (but cute!) cake. Her favorite gift was a baby stroller to push her babies in, but my favorite was her new Strider bike!

I’m back!

Hey, there! It’s been a while. My family has been going through a lot of life changes – so many that I haven’t had a second to work on photos. Tonight, I decided to take a little break to edit photos from over a month ago, before Lil’ Miss K even turned two. Next, I’ll actually edit her birthday photos and post those. I’ve missed this little blog…I’ve definitely missed my photography.

These were taken in the West Bottoms in an attempt to get some two-year-old shots. Unfortunately Lil’ Miss K was in a clingy mood and a bit afraid of the bridge, so things didn’t go as planned. But we still managed to get a few keepers!

Photo of the Day: Twenty-two months old

Sticking with tradition, Lil’ Miss K turned twenty-two months old a week ago, but I just now got around to taking her monthly photo. (Had to get a true comparison, right?) Has she changed since last month? It’s hard for me to tell. I think maybe her hair has grown a little. I can hardly believe she’ll be two in February. At that point I’ll switch to quarterly photos.

Family Fun Day

I’ve been busy editing portrait sessions, so I just now got around to editing personal photos from last weekend. I had Friday off work for Independence Day, so we had a busy day with family and friends. We started the morning off at Deanna Rose Farmstead. To my surprise, Lil’ Miss K had no fear feeding the ducks or goats. She let those goat gobble pellets right out of her hand! She even speaks their language – she kept yelling “baa!” at them.

After that we drove to my in-laws’ a few hours away, where we visited my husband’s grandma in the nursing home and went to a fun park in Independence, Kansas. Lil’ Miss K had a blast riding the carousel and train, which cost a whopping nickel and a quarter each. Nothing like good ol’ fashioned family fun!

(I was having so much fun being Mommy that I really slacked in the photographer department. I kept handing my camera to my husband all day – so thanks to him and my brother-in-law Matt for these photos.)
