Pictures, pictures, and more pictures!

The tulips in my MIL's garden have been so beautiful, and Lainey just couldn't resist, and neither could I. Whenever she sees flowers, she'll sniff (repetedly) until I let her smell them and then she pushes them away. She's so cute!
Lainey the lion tamer...


Sweet Baby


My two loves... Lainey, and my big purse! Jk Joshy! I love you!
This was taken at my surprise bday bbq- Not a fan of my haircut, but oh well, hair grows...
Joshy brought me a dozen roses, and a card that plays 'I'm so Excited' because most of the time, he is ;). He also got me a way cute white trench coat and an external hard drive to accommodate my digital scrapbooking endeavors...
This is what I found on my mirror the morning of my bday- So cute, huh! (And yes, our bathroom is STILL under construction!!!) We have really enjoyed being outside in the nice weather. Lainey loves going on walks and seeing all the pretty blossoms. She can even do the hand actions for 'Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree'!


Check out those eyes!

This is her fake cry face... she does it quite often :) Lately, when she falls down, she takes the opportunity to enjoy it and just relax...





I've really enjoyed taking pictures of Lainey... I worked at Storybook Portraits my last 'single' semester in Cedar and learned a few things. I just wish I had a better camera, a tripod, some studio lights... an assistant... maybe someday. Photoshop makes up for what I don't have, I guess! When you photograph kids, you take like 100 pictures, and usually only 5-10 work out, but usually they are pretty cute. I found myself getting a little frustrated 20 minutes into our little picture taking session, but as I was downloading the pictures, these were my favorites! Lainey gets this really cheesy smile on her face whenever I pull out the camera and then she just ignores it. She did really well sitting on the chair, until she figured out how to get down :)




Here are some pictures I snapped while Josh had Lainey outside in our back yard (I can call it ours if we are living with the inlaws, right?)

her 'scrunchie' face













Lainey points at everything! Birds, planes, cars, you name it!

Look how big she is getting, she's so cute! How fun! We'll be in Heber as of this Saturday, so let me know when you'll be in Park City again and we'll play!

I love those pictures you took, the one where she is putting her hand in the bucket is a blow up for sure! Look at her little pig tails! I was just ooooing and ahhhhing over her, such a doll. You're lucky to have her. What grade will you be teaching? Your so creative, you'll be such a great teacher.

Those pictures are just gorgeous! I can't believe how grown up she is getting!
