I would say things have been better around our house since the new year. Much better since just before my trip. As we turn this corner towards five, it’s so interesting to watch their fears melt away, and big girl personalities emerge from the fray.
This kid is definitely going through a growth spurt. She’s clocking in at a solid 35.5 pounds, is growing like a weed, and definitely needs her sleep. She also sings nonstop. I think she thinks she’s in an episode of glee! She’s just so happy right now. She’s happy to go to daycare, happy to be picked up, happy to go to bed, happy to wake.
Delaney is turning into such a little adult. She’s so an oldest child! (Don’t let people fool you, even if it’s only by a minute, it’s a real thing.) She really understands cause and effect right now, and seems to understand how her actions have consequences on the people around her. She’s very conscious of having good bedtimes and sleeping in her own bed when I need my sleep. She’s always aware of everyone’s mood around her, and does what she can to make them happy or make them smile.
She looks so tired in this picture. It was a rough day for her, and she was such a trooper, but you can really see the toll things took on her in this shot. The upside of this photoshoot is that now she gets it. She asks about future photoshoots, and remembers past photoshoots we did. I have a feeling she’s going to help me out with some amazing setups in Florida!
**I was going to wait to post the shots I used for cards until after Valentine’s Day, until I realized that none of you are in their daycare classes and won’t be receiving a Valentine from them!
