Birthday self-portrait

Last year on my birthday, I took a picture of Lucy and I hanging out in the backyard, and I thought it would be a fun tradition to do every year. So today I attempted to take the birthday self portrait with Lucy. It's a bit more difficult with a two year old than it was with a one year old, (and lot more difficult when the remote for the camera is dead). So we have, instead, a series of pictures that all are a little lacking. Use your mental Photoshop, and I'm sure you can piece together a fabulous shot.

Here's the picture from last year...


And here are the shots from today...




And yes, Lucy has been wearing that top for the last three seasons. I highly recommend buying sweater dresses that can be used as tunic-y tops the next year. I'm pretty sure she'll be wearing it next year as well. This staggering amount of practicality on my part surely makes up for the shopping spree I went on for Lucy today, yes?

Child in motion. Definitely describes a two year old. Happy birthday!

Which means you bought the coat? Yes? I hope so. I love how sweet these are. I want to (and probably will) copy. So, thanks for that. Also- I love how she got bigger and you got smaller. Nice job!

If you're like me, you probably feel ambivalent when people say this, but I can't believe how big she is getting! Whenever anyone says that about Max, I'm both glad that he's growing, but sad that he is! Anyway, what a pretty little girl you've got! And happy birthday, too!

Shauna - your pix are beauteious! (It's a word! I decided).

I just want to say thank you for your kind outreach on my blog recently. It's been a rough ride, and the support has been so appreciated and helpful.
