Miss M |Twenty-two Months

Our little ball of fire turned twenty-two months old yesterday. She’s as opinionated and ornery as they come. Everyone tells us “this is a fun age” – and they are so right. We love her to pieces!

See how she’s changed since last month.
(Those curls are sure getting more prominent – and I love it!)

Miss M Turns One

My baby is ONE! My emotions aren’t sure whether to be excited or sad about my littlest turning one today. I think it’s a mix of both. She’s had a busy week with 4th of July festivities, and she’s got a busy weekend ahead with her big birthday party. She’s now drinking cow’s milk from a sippy cup, climbing up everything (like up and over the couch), standing up from the floor, and taking a few steps! She’s starting to say more words with meaning now – it’s fun to have two-way communication with her!

Check out how she’s changed since last month. Since this is her last “first year” photo, I’ll be moving away from the rocking chair pics to photos standing with Daddy, like we did with big sis.

Lil’ Miss K | Spring Photo Shoot

My daughter’s daycare does “school” photos twice a year. I sent her to school with her Easter dress, hoping to buy a cute pose for the grandparents to hang on their wall. We ended up with four proofs – the one everyone liked the most was the one with a giant tear in her eye. She cried the entire time! So, I set up a sheet and had an impromptu photo shoot in the middle of our dining room right while we were all trying to get our Easter meal together. (The light was good!) Luckily my family expects no less of me – they were patient and supportive and kept cooking right around us. Lil’ Miss K wasn’t very smiley since I was delaying her lunch and nap, but I still got a few cute shots.

Photo(s) of the Day: Cake Smash!

Baby K had a great time devouring her first birthday cake! It took her a bit of time to figure out what to do, and the cake was a little too dense for her to make big mess, but she definitely enjoyed each bite!

A big thank you to my friend Mandy for taking my camera and doing a fantastic job capturing these priceless memories.
