Posting at SHINE

After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

purple fairy

My mom got a new lens. I wore my jammies today (most days I have 2 or 3 different jammies on during the day) I put on my new purple fairy wings and started jumping on the trampoline. Is that any reason to try out a new lens? in the middle of the day when the light is too harsh? Mom thinks so :)

my little LOVE bug

she cracks me up because she is so serious trying to learn how to play :)

She had an adorable dress on, but (of course) she changed before we left the house. She had cute pig tails too but (of course) she had to rip those out . . . no point in pretending to be compliant when you're really not :(

It's alright, I LOVE her just the way she is!

Fashion? Friday

Today Tia went upstairs for a few minutes and I could hear her happily playing. When she came down I asked her what she was doing and she said "I got Lijie's undawear". When I looked at her I could see she had a lot of underwear on! I took some photos and then she took them all off. I counted them. 20. Silly girl, I think she needs someone to play with, maybe preschool might be a good idea after all!

Today I told her about how we waited for her . . .

Tia, black polka dot
She likes to say "talk to me Mommy, . . . ." and tonight she was just not ready to sleep when I was putting her to bed so I asked her if she wanted to hear about how she came to be our daughter?! she said, "tell me Mommy".

I shared that after we had her older brother and sister we wanted another little girl, we were matched with precious Casiana in Romania but they never allowed her to come home. We went to Ukraine where we saw the face of and met and brought home her precious brother. Years went by and we still had an ache, a little girl missing in our family . . . we looked for her, we couldn't find her but we filled out the paperwork anyway and we waited. One day they called - they sent her photo and we saw the face of the little girl we were waiting for. Our Tia, our beautiful daughter. Now we enjoy that precious little face everyday.

She liked the story, she started kissing me, she was being silly. I love that girl. She still couldn't fall asleep.

She drives me crazy.

Dad took over and she is asleep now.
