Your Last Day of 1...

Tomorrow my precious Addison will be 2.

1 year ago today she was still my little baby.

Just learning how to play.

To climb...

To slide...

To swim...

and say cheese.

She went to waterparks...

the beach...

trick or treating...

and had dance parties.

She fought epic battles...

and took on potty training.

She became a big sister...

She learned to put sentences together, like "No Mama, I don't want to", "What Mama, I'm busy" and "Mama! I pooped!".

But most of all she went and grew one year older.

One year wiser.

One year more beautiful than the very first day I held her in my arms.

Park Shenanigans

We found an awesome park within walking distance of our house!


Only slightly angry we didn't let her play.

Lily was swinging super high and yet only looks slightly terrified.


The kid ran everywhere.

This thing spun super fast and everytime she got on it she would declare that she "did not like it at all".

You'd think she wouldn't have ridden it 5 more times.

She is the master of getting big kids to do her bidding.


She is such a ham!

"Look at what I can do!"

The real question here is "who's attacking who?".

Last but not least...

"She's not giving you the stink eye, that's just her face."

Good Light!

Fantastic light was in the bathroom this morning when the girls woke me up so I threw the two older ones in the bathtub while the littlest slept and snapped a couple photos.

Addison's precious little curls.

Lily being anal retentive with some squirt toys.

Look at the concentration.

Addison trying to drown herself.

Then her sister of course!

I love bathtime <3.

Look at my little babies ears!

I've lovingly deemed them her "little Yoda ears".

I think they're cute!

I don't think she's very amused by me.

Newborn Wonderful-ness...

Scarlett is 3 and a 1/2 weeks old and quickly starting to look less like a newborn and more like a chubby snuggly baby.

So I set up a little "mini shoot" for her to make sure I always remember how small she was.

Because, soon enough, they turn into this...

Still adorable.

Just a smidge more demanding.

Or even worse...

They turn into beautiful little girls who will become even more beautiful women.

Life just isn't fair sometimes!
