We got to celebrate the second birthday of our sweet niece today. She was a miracle baby. Every time we see her, we delight in her development. I’ve seen her once a month for the past 3 months. Every time I see her, her vocabulary has grown and now she’s saying two word utterances. I’m a speech-language pathologist by trade…(and yes I took monthly language samples on both of my girls starting at the age of one). She is such a good natured little girl. My girls absolutely love their little cousin. She calls both of them Annie (a little overgeneralization, but that will soon correct itself). It’s so funny. Today, we heard “Annie” over and over because she
was often trying to find or get the attention of one of them.
Just as we were getting ready to leave she sat down to play with some birthday toys.
This cracks me up. She loves the girls, but she’s still not quite sure about me. I can only imagine what is going through her mind “why does that crazy lady always have that camera in front of her face?”
Aaaaand, “Maybe if I give her a little smile, she’ll leave me alone.”
Happy birthday sweet girl!
Life is not a matter of milestones, but of moments…my most favorite quote ever. I take pictures of my family to record the moments- big, small and even the crazy ones. When I’m not making my kids repeat an action 20 times to get the right shot, you can find me scrapbooking them or volunteering at their schools. I’m also into skiing, music and drinking wine. I am NOT into running, but I do it so I can drink wine. You can find me at www.capturethislifephotography.com
