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!

It's all about the goggles!


She loves wearing the goggles. as long as they're pink. She didn't like the fact that "that boy that helped me swim" was replaced by a girl instructor. Luckily "that boy" came by and told me to pop her in the water against her will or she would never have gone in. Once she was in she was havin' fun. until it was time to get out. she was not a happy camper. not even what with the pink goggles and all. (for a bigger view of her closed eyes just click on the photo)

an engineer maybe?


She's three. (and 3 months) We have not taught her to use a screwdriver (of course!). For me it was tricky to learn (when I was like 30!) . . . the whole "righty tighty lefty loosy thing, just to remember which way to turn it ya' know.

She was waiting for me to play trains with her. I noticed her getting the screwdriver out and trying to use it. it was cute - it was the wrong type of screwdriver but I didn't think there was any harm. I laughed out loud 15 minutes later when I realized she had taken the whole thing apart (14 screws!) and was carrying around parts of the roundhouse to that train set.

Does it seem a little unusual that she can do/did that? I'm thinkin' so. Maybe she is a bit bright?! I'm just callin' her "Our Little Engineer".

More Ours.

As promised a little photo shoot in honor of Equal Day :) She chose the outfit, she wasn't happy about the pigtails until I promised candy :) She only wants to wear her hair like Bella's (one ponytail in the back). The pigtails were out the minute I said we were done. She is a character. We are incredibly blessed :)

ps I couldn't figure out WHY this photo is so grainy and then I realized the ISO was at 1250. bummer.

Equal Day.

We couldn't think of a better name :) Today marks the day that we have had Tia as long as she was without us. We are calling it Equal Day (any better ideas?)

It is amazing to think our precious peanut has been with us for 19 months and 3 weeks! YOWZA. We love her, she was a giggle box today (so fun!) but boy does she bring a lot of attitude to our lives :) I will try to get a photo of her tomorrow,

Today she celebrated by taking her first swim lesson. Did she like it?? "that was so so fun!" she told her sister afterwards! (I forgot my camera :(

Happy Equal Day Tia (okay I admit that sounds pitiful :)
