Addie's January in Photos

So what if it’s almost the middle of February? I’ve been running a few somethings behind on everything so the fact that these photos have been compiled before Addie leaves for college is a bit of a feat. I’ve been following these two little girls of mine around with a camera every chance I get and the truth is Vivi is around more with the whole school thing and she’s far more willing to let me take her picture than the big one.

It’s not that she doesn’t like her picture being taken, she just has so many other important things to be doing. I do my best to capture little moments in her life rather than “OKAY! NOW LOOK AT ME AND SMILE!” photos. Here’s the top photos from Addie’s January 2012.

    Oh, the feathers.
    January will forever be divided into "before lice" and "after lice." If there's feathers? It's clearly BL.
