Magnolia -- the first year and beyond child photo sessions
I can't believe Magnolia is already 14.5 months old! We've watched this little lady grow up so fast, she is super smart and determined, and as she learns how to communicate and talk we are seeing her personality blossom. She's very funny, has a sense of humor, and loves to make you laugh and smile. I am also suprised at how much fewer photos I take of Magnolia these days, maybe because she never sits still long enough to get a good picture, or if she's doing something cute and I reach for the camera, she is usually distracted by me and moves from her position to check out the camera, me or something else. But each month around the 5th of the month, I try to get in a photo shoot so that I can watch her grow. Here are a few photos from her 14 month shoot and some from the holidays.
This holiday season was a hard one for our family, I became very, very sick and spent 5 days in the hospital over Christmas. It wasn't fun and I had never been in the hospital, ever in my life, until childbirth (and we were hoping to avoid the hospital even then, but it didn't happen that way). The hospital stay was horrible and I was so tired and in a lot of pain as I returned home, so that when we celebrated Christmas and opened gifts, I had to take numerous breaks to nap and rest.
