Evan In 2011 --- An IPhone Photo Retrospective

Evan 2011 Wow, 2011 has been an amazing year. Not only did I become pregnant, and give birth to our second child, but my toddler has grown and changed in ways that continue to astound me.

Instead of putting together a roundup of photos to represent each month of Evan’s year, I decided to delve into my iPhone’s photo library to pull out some of my favorite pictures from 2011.

Some of the photos have special meaning, some of them are just cool captures, but as a collective, this gallery really represents my special little guy’s year perfectly.

Click below to browse the gallery, and be prepared to smile!
