when you're two and three....

your eyes are spectacularly blue
flowers tickle your nose
you can make silly faces just because
blowing bubbles is the hardest thing you have to do all day
your best friend gets to come over and play
you can scowl and nobody takes you seriously
hugs are tight enough to squish your head and you like it like that
and
a day running around in the backyard
barefoot
followed by chicken nuggets for dinner
makes for a perfect day
~
guess who's going to act like a two or three year old today

  2. OMG!!! Those girls are just gorgeous!! What fun to have a sister.
    I should really hire you to take pics of my family before the oldest flies the coop. Then you'd have more gorgeous kids under your belt ;)

    Great photos!

  31. I wish so much I could be a little kid again, just for a few days or so. Perhaps this is why I have become a child photographer as well! Instant access to childhood.

    These images are so adorable..I LOVE the one with the tickling flower. What a face!
