Dear Baby Girl

Dearest Baby Girl of Mine:

One of these days, I'd love to be able to get a picture of you wherein you don't look psychotic.

Or where you're looking in the general direction of the camera.

One in which you are not searching your pockets for your smile.

Or one where you have your eyes open.

I'd love for you to cooperate, put your nice smile on, and sit still for me while I try to capture your spunky little personality and preserve it, forever in time.

Wait. that I think of it, I see that that is exactly what I've done. Captured your stinker little self being YOU.

Little poop.


  1. Great photos, she is a doll even if she is a stinker!

  2. that is too funny! the last few are at least frame-worthy :)

    and my goodness, every time i see a photo of her i think she is the spitting image of you!

  3. This made me smile. I can never get my youngest (Caleb-2) smiling and looking at the camera. Every time I try to take a pic of all 3 of them then older 2 look sweet and perfectly "normal" and Caleb will have a crazy look on his face. Thanks for making me appreciate it!

  4. That last one is absolutely adorable!

  5. haha. That's exactly how my shoots go with BOTH boys now. I've just reconciled to the fact that I am going to have crazy pictures of them for the next few years :)

  6. OMG- she is simple adorable!!!!

  7. Oh, I feel like I know her! That must be a sign of great photography!

  8. What fun! I love that you keep all the shots!

  9. I smell a scrapbook layout! So cute!

  10. Yeah, you pretty much nailed it here! ;)

  11. I didn't have her -exactly like the youngest of 4 of one fam. of grand kids! Yep, strong willed and psychotic:):)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
