I Have A Two And A Half Year Old

When did that happen!?  Just a moment ago she looked like this…

I Am 8 Months Old Today!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.

Annabelle's 1 Year Monthly PhotoTwo, I told myself.  It made sense.  Two was when you officially stopped giving your child’s age in months.

I Am Two Years Old!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….
