Miss M | And She’s Two

This girl. I feel like I was just bringing her home from the hospital, but last weekend we celebrated her second birthday. It’s funny to look back on how we thought she’d be our easy-going child. She’s fierce. She’s opinionated, she’s a talker, she doesn’t take “no” for an answer. She has the biggest personality! She and her sister are best friends – it’s a childhood bond I never really understood until I had two of my own, since my sister and I were twelve years apart.

Miss M loves Elmo and swimming, so we had an Elmo pool party! (Can I just say I love summer birthdays?)

It has been fun to take monthly photos of her, but as she grows, she won’t change as quickly, so I’ll concentrate on filling out her baby book rather than posting monthly. 😉

See how she’s changed from two months ago (I forgot to post last month), last year, and when she was a newborn.

Family Portraits | Rainy Spring Day

Last weekend’s family portrait session almost got rained out, but the skies parted up just in time. Little Dean just turned two, and I have to say, he did amazing! He posed and smiled perfectly … he must have had his photo taken a time or two before. 🙂 Enjoy these photos from the beautiful Loose Park, and check out how Dean has changed since his one-year shots.

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 | Twenty Months

This girly turned 20 months old a few days ago. After a really rough winter, we finally had some relief with a spring-like weekend! What a treat to take the girls on a run to the park this afternoon. Miss M insisted on staying in her church dress, but we changed her out of her tights into comfy pants…hence the weird mismatched outfit. We’re never dressed for the occasion when the girls are in the mood to take photos!

See how she’s grown since last month.
