Celebrating the 3 year old
My little girl turned 3 last week. Of course being the on the ball mom I am, I took some photos this week to celebrate.
My daughter is finally wearing her glasses on a regular basis. She has had them since she turned one, but this year she wears them almost everyday. I even asked her if she wanted to take them off for her "photoshoot" which came with a resounding "NO". Every year I take her picture with this doll. This is Sarah, and she was my baby doll when I was little. I'm guessing when she turns 16 an image like this might be a little harder, but so far the fight is minimal.
I wanted images this year that really embraced her story and told our real life. I thought it would be a perfect day to work on a monthly project I am doing this year called an hour by hour project. I take an image once every hour of the day. This is something I want to repeat on a yearly basis with each kid. I know it will get harder as they get older, but it will be fun to have these to look back on as the years pass.
It was a dark and rainy day that started by sleeping late! My favorite kind of day. After breakfast we headed out to Target, just the two of us. Fin wanted to pick out her big girl panties (even though she isn't quite ready for them) and we had birthday treats. Everyone should get a birthday cake pop for breakfast on their birthday. Then it was home to an easy going day of playing with her new doll house, watching Sofia and waiting for Grammie. We celebrate birthdays pretty quietly around here with just a small cake and family. Overall I would say the day was a success.
A day in the life of a new 3 year old. Celebrating the day my daughter turned 3 years old.
Finally this week I was able to get a few images of my daughter in my dress from when I was little. This was the second and I am sure last year she could wear it. I took her down to play in one of our favorite spots that we hang out frequently. It is hard to believe just how fast time flies!
