My Best Shot Monday

Happy Last Day of June (already?!) everybody. It's Monday again, and here's one of my best shots recently.

We've been talking a bit about how Lil Girl is certainly no longer a baby anymore, but a full fledged 2 year old. Her speech has blossomed in the last few months, so that our conversations are rich and often entertaining. (Even the 'why cuz' ones.) She's moving from scribbling to trying to make representational shapes, just in the past two weeks or so. She and her brother now don't just grab toys and grunt at each other, they can have real and meaningful arguments (If "Mine! Mine!" & "No, it's not!" are to be considered meaningful). She's coming out of that period where she didn't want to even look at anybody she didn't know really well, and her personality has exploded.

So here's the first picture I took of Lil Girl that made me gasp when I saw it: I immediately realized, Oh my goodness: She's growing up. Sometime in the space between the previous picture and this one, I had a little girl in my sights, not a baby.






It's so exciting!



(As for the promised wedding pictures, I've got posts upon posts still to deliver, I know: Come back Wednesday for the getting ready pictures!)

What a cutie! I was just thinking this about my oldest today. Although he is only 19 months, he amazes me with how fast he's turning into a little boy!
