two and a half is almost here

This week I took pictures in honor of Chica (almost) turning two and a half. I was going to wait for Dan to help me, but when the afternoon ended up being overcast with scattered showers, I decided to venture alone, once the rain had let up. It was somewhat dramatic. And wet. I tried to remain calm and not chuck my camera to the bottom of the lake like I considered doing the last time I took her pictures. She did so great. Chocolate bribes go a long way with her. :)

I loved so many of them, it was hard paring them down to the hundred you're about to see. What can I say? I'm one proud mama, and I still can't comprehend why out of all the women out there, God picked me to get to be her mother. She's my favorite almost two and a half year old in the whole, wide world.

(This is the look she's perfected over time to get her Daddy to do whatever she wants him to.)


  1. oh my gosh!! she's beautiful!

    She looks so grown-up.
