Addie's March in Photos

I’ve been taking pictures since the beginning of 2012 like a madwoman. My hard drive is groaning under the dozens of photos I upload everyday and the reality that I’m going to have to do something with all these photos looms heavy in the back of my mind but I don’t regret it one bit. I have so many precious moments captured of both of my girls, and many of them were as easy as having my camera nearby, ready to go and clicking. When I wrote my post about how to get better photos of big kids, I can assure you that I follow my own advice daily.

The beginning of March was spent in an oddly warm and sunny Indiana and March finished out in warm and sunny Utah where we’re just waiting for the arrival of my nephew. Addie is in heaven in Utah, surrounded by grandparents, parks and pets. She’s old enough now that she schedules her own sleepovers with her grandparents and friends and can head off with them and do their own thing. So far she’s gone to a museum, a gymnastics championship and dinner with family friends. I’m going to miss her when she heads back to Indiana to go back to school but I’m absolutely sure she had the best spring break in her entire class.

  • Braided 7 of 20
    It didn't last very long with how active she is (and her hair isn't quite long enough) but I learned how to braid and I'm addicted to it.
  • IT’S SATURDAY! 8 of 20
    This is pretty much how I feel every Saturday as well, I just can't jump off the couch about it without causing damage to myself and my house.
