photo shoot: take THREE

had to document the beginning of leah's third year in style.this was the second field we went to that day. the first one {the one with beautiful yellow flowers blooming ALL throughout} had been mowed down earlier that week, unbenownced to me. boo.

but, these will do.
she's pretty cute, no?

mother's note: i kept getting frustrated that i couldn't get a picture without leah's hand in her mouth or fingers snapping or mouth in a normal shape.
then i stepped back and thought, "but this is leah."
it's still going to take some getting used to, but we love our little leah as-is.
finger snapping and all.

She is just darling! And I love seeing their little personalities. My sister is always wanting the "perfect pose" of her kiddies, but I much prefer looking at a picture and saying, "Oh, that's so her or him."

Thanks for your comment, too. I do follow Julia (and I have met her) on reader, but I'll have to go back and look for her photos from Europe.

Love them, love them, love them! It's funny because I didn't notice her hands in her mouth or snapping fingers, they just seemed so candid and fun. Happy birthday to Leah!

Hi Maren! I looked on Jamie's blog to find your blog. What a darling little 3 year old. She looks like you did!! I wanted to wish your mom a happy birthday, but I have lost all of your emails. I would love to hear from all of you. My email is joann.auger@nebo.edu. Hope to hear from you!! JoAnn
