When did that happen!? Just a moment ago she looked like this…
And now she’s a little girl. A little girl with ideas and opinions. Who speaks in full sentences. Who has her own unique sense of humor. Who is curious about Everything. Who thinks when you ask her a question, carefully forming her answer. Who proudly refers to herself as a “big girl”. Sigh….
When Annabelle was born I started taking pictures of her on her “monthly” birthdays. I intended to stop when she turned one, but then she turned one and I couldn’t.
But two rolled around and I just couldn’t let it go completely, so I decided instead to document half birthdays. Remember when you used to give your age in halves and three quarters? Now I refuse to admit being a year older until the clock strikes twelve on my birthday. Of course since Mike is 6 months older than me, he always insists on rounding my age up…a practice I am adamantly against.
Getting monthly pictures is a bit tricky now that she’s ALL over the place. Here she was being a very good listener and holding up the sign for me to see….
