I love this project because honestly if it wasn’t for this project and how busy crazy things have been these last several weeks I am not sure how good I would have been about taking photos of my sweet family. I love my sweet photography friends for pushing me to do this each month.
This month has been just as busy as ever. Kevin has been in the midst of swim season (he coaches the high school swim team) and my kiddos and I have been stuck inside during this cold Ohio month of January. I am going to be honest, there has been days I wanted to pull my hair out in need of some sunshine and even more need to let me kids run around outside and get some of their energy out instead of on each other . But while we have had many crazy days we have had many more days of laughing and having fun. And in all honesty, how boring would we be if we didn’t fight every once in a while.
These first images are of my sweet little lady.. she honestly cracks me up. She can be so spunky, bossy, sassy and then turn around and be the sweetest little thing and tender hearted little girl I know. Poor Jacob gets bossed around by her all the time. ”jacob, go pick up your room” …. ” Jacob, stop chewing on your shirt”… Jacob, go eat your dinner”… honestly, she is such a little mother hen. But as my mom reminds me, she is copying you. lol! The other day she was up in her room playing with her dolls as we have had to move all of her babydoll stuff from the basement to her closet because it was taking over and I caught her reading to her baby doll.. oh how I love little girls and their baby dolls. Now, once she caught me photographing her, she certainly hammed it up, but those first few moments were priceless. As a girl.. she is more picky, even at 3, with what she wears each day.. it is adorable and frustrating all at the same time. The dress she has on in this picture is her favorite dress.. if I let her wear it everyday she would.
My big boy.. “special time” .. meaning time with just mom and Jacob is super duper important and much needed with my big guy. Maybe it is because he was my first and had 2.5 years of just me.. or maybe it is just because he loves his mom so much (wink wink).. nevertheless, I try really hard to make time for him and do something special. This time we went to Great Wolf Lodge, which luckily is about 5 minutes downt the road from us. He wanted to go to the arcades and play some games. So I gave him his allotted money for the trip and he was off.. we had a blast, even though he didn’t win quite as much as he would have liked.
and I can’t forget my little guy.. just as perfect as he has been since the moment he has joined our family. Gosh.. I can’t believe we are 2 weeks short of him already being 3 months old. We adore him.. just love every single part of him. And he is so stinkin adorable I could just stare at this cuteness all day long. xxoo
