It’s Flag Day and I am feeling bad that I didn’t put out my flag. Thought about it on several occasions, but my mood was sort of off today. Well, okay not sort of… it was completely off. Lack of sleep is the primary cause for today. Sophia and I have both been a bit under the weather this week. Off to see Dr. Dixie for an adjustment for Sophia today and going to medical doctor tomorrow. Going to see if we can find the cause of her cranky moods. If they don’t find anything at the medical doctor, I will just have to blame the last two days on not having a paci. Thought we could get rid of it, but I don’t have it in me just yet.
The remainder of this post is going to be FULL of images. My cousin, Eden, was about to ask me about the girls and needing an update the other day and baam… I posted what I had of the girls at the fire. Eden, be sure to tell Uncle Buk we were thinking of him during our fire festivities.
Tonight, the weather was quite lovely and I was outside with the girls for a bit. So I decided with some potentially dreamy light on the horizon I would grab my camera. Plus, Sophia was a total mess and sometimes it is just as important to capture boogery noses as it is to get the pretty dresses and shoes they never wear pictures. Also, I was going to get Emma to take some pics as well. Again, all three girls were AS IS. No primping and fluffing of the hair for this ‘photo shoot’.
Here we go…
Miss Sophia trying to climb the terrace wall. She is a climber. Climbed her way out of the bathtub today and fell right out. Maybe that explains why we needed to see Dr. Dixie?
And she has a thing about eating dirt. Not sure what it is about dirt but she loves it.
Face doesn’t show as much dirt and grime from this distance. I should zoom this and see what I get.
So, Olivia, my most willing subject these days plunked herself down and was going to pose. Sophia, climbed right in and was going to be a part of this whole process.
My posing queen. No processing on these images, but I am going to play around once I get done working on Carrie’s baby girl’s pics. They are on my list of things to do while Chad plays golf this weekend.
And a bit of talking and adjusting.
Sophia was less than helpful for Emma’s turn.
Here she is. My first girl. Pretty sweet when she sits still and lets me take her picture.
The green grass on her head is for Lindsey. She is all about Lindsey when she wants to be and when green is somewhere fun and different. Also, Lindsey… She is growing her hair out to donate. In your honor!
And… Olivia was less than helpful as well.
So, while I was loving the light in front of me… This is what I turn around to find. The neigbor’s cat, our cat, and a muddy little girl. Some would swoop in and get the kid out of there, but not me. She was already dirty… it was time for pictures.
Please note, she does not like stuff on her feet. If she gets a crumb or something stuck to her foot when she is walking, she stops and sits down to try and pick it off.
The mud was not coming off!
This image will make more sense in a bit. But there is a resemblance to someone in her family.
And she is off and done.
Maybe not. This was sort of fun. Let me see if the mud will get the mud off.
Woops, she did slip a little getting back in.
It really isn’t all that bad.
And… even though I am a handful… I am super cute!
And.. for those following my journey to better health and fitness… here is my before image. And do you see the family resemblance?
And for anyone that made it through all those pictures. You deserve a gold star. So, point your finger in the air and draw yourself one right now.
