Monthly Photo Project – July

I’m kind of sad that this is the last post for the monthly photo challenge I did as a part of my Bucket List for last year. It’s been fun to make myself really focus on getting photos of the girls each month to see how they’ve grown and remember some of the day-to-day moments.

July’s photos were pretty appropriate considering how dang hot it was!! A little bit of pool-time-fun for the win!

Clearly Pumpkin was enjoying pool time with her sister!

Little Pumpkin does this all the time with her hands, and I love that I caught her doing it!

They aren’t exactly playing together just yet, but it’s pretty cute to watch Peanut hand off toys to Pumpkin! I also love watching how serious she is when making her “soup” – love that she has an active imagination! I hope she’s able to hold on to that and develop it into creativity as she grows up.

Y’all, messy, wet hair is such a picture of summertime for me. After all my years spent with summer days full of the pool, it’s so much fun to watch my girls start their own summertime memories – complete with crazy pool hair!

Monthly Photo Project – May

My goodness has it been crazy around here the past two months! This time of year is always exhausting & full of long hours at work, and then we added in multiple trips and I’ve been spent!

I have to admit that May sort of slipped my mind as far as photographing the girls for the Bucket List (and apparently so did posting the photos since it’s almost July!!). I did still get some photos of the two of them, and they’re about as “real life” as can be. (I feel like this has become a bit of a trend… not exactly what I had in mind when I decided on the photo challenge, but I really do like getting more of the everyday reality of what our life looks like – and what their relationship looks like – rather than perfectly posed photos in perfect set ups each month.)

This is so life for us right now – Peanut constantly trying to love on her sister (who usually doesn’t have too much patience for it). And I think we’re mostly over the potty training hump now, but the pull-ups were definitely a reality for us for a while.

(And don’t worry – Max was right behind Peanut’s chair the whole time in case she got a little wobbly!)

Monthly Photo Project – March

The March installment of the Yearly Bucket List photo project was coupled with Peanut & I picking wildflowers, and while Peanut had a good time with it, Pumpkin wasn’t really having it. Even without my little Sunshine girl smiling, I still love how these turned out.
