Monthly Photo Project – February

February was a bit of a whirlwind with lots of travel, so the photos are about as everyday as they come. And I love it.

Just some simple shots of my girls playing together. Max and his mom reassembled the activity bouncer for Hannah while I was gone for a conference, and it was fun to watch the two of them playing with it when I made it back home.

Peanut would take Pumpkin’s hand to help her hit the buttons and make them play music/light up. We may have needed a few reminders to be gentle, but it was sweet anyway!

Monthly Photo Project – January

January’s photo challenge photoshoot ended up happening a day earlier than I’d planned when Peanut came in while I was photographing Pumpkin for her 3 month letter. She immediately wanted to jump into the frame, so we brought out their adorable shirts we’ve been gifted and away we went!

There were a lot of images I liked from this session (of course – they’re of my girls!), and I had a hard time choosing my most favorite…. So you’re just going to get to see a bunch of them!

That “cheeeeeese” face of Peanut’s just cracks me up. And Pumpkin looks a little less than impressed haha.

Max was shooting a little too during this process, and I’m already loving getting different angles with his photos mixed in! My photo is on the left, and Max’s on the right.

Those blue eyes… be still my heart!!

Peanut decided once again that if we were taking pictures, she wanted to have her camera in hand too. I can only hope she ends up developing a real love for photography – I can only imagine how fun that would be to share that with her when she is older!

Looks like Pumpkin may be interested in the camera too!

Well.. maybe at this point her interest in the camera isn’t exactly the kind I was hoping for!

I’ll end things with two more of Max’s shots… I especially love the last one!

Monthly Photo Project – October

So I am just going to admit that I’ve already “failed” in my photo project. Not that I didn’t get photos of my girls in October, but none of them were with the good camera. I could say it’s because Pumpkin arrived later than I expected, or blame it on the sleep-deprivation, but I’ll save the excuses and just own up to it (and do better moving forward).

That being said, I picked one of my favorite shots of my two girls to share for the month of October. Sure, there are the adorable proud big sister shots in the hospital. There are the pictures of Peanut peeking into Pumpkin’s rocker to gaze at her little sister. But this one just moves my heart.

It’s been a bit of a tough transition at times with Peanut. She’s incredibly sweet with her little sister, but I think it has been a little tough on her that I’m with Pumpkin so much & having to focus on her.  Add in the already “tumultuous two’s”, and it adds up to some rough moments on this mama when it comes to her oldest daughter.

But then there’s this. This moment when Peanut comes to snuggle in with her mama and baby sister. When she’s content to just be near Pumpkin and that’s wholly and completely enough for her.

The fact that I get to be there too, and that her sweet little face is snuggled up on my arm? It’s the best.
