I’ve been taking them…. I just can’t seem to find the time to post them. Here we are almost 5 weeks behind again…
Eloise: You started your first official year of Home school Kindergarten in September. We’re taking it slow and allowing for lots of play and exploration of your interests as well as throwing in a bit of those “academics” too. I’m excited for this journey, however long and fruitful it may be.
Eloise: Hair flying all over, glasses on because your friends are wearing theirs too, milk mustache and always in mid-sentence. Perfect Ellie portrait.
Eloise: Your Aunt Katie is getting married and I captured this great shot of you at the rehearsal. You are very excited to be the flower girl and I can’t wait to see you walk down the aisle throwing those petals.
(Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture any photos myself of Ellie walking down the aisle, so this photo is courtesy of my cousin, Laura Shine- thank you!)
Eloise : You did a wonderful job walking down the aisle, as the flower girl in your Aunt Katie and Uncle Nick’s wedding! You loved playing the part of the “flower fairy girl”!
Eloise: We headed up the coast this past weekend to go apple picking this year. However, it was sadly too late to pick apples, so we enjoyed the hay maze, horse rides, tractor rides and fun with friends instead- and brought home a pumpkin too.
Not sure if I’ll ever get back to doing this once a week, but at least I’m still taking photos regularly! 😉
So I have for you, portraits, 33, 34 and 35…
Eloise: This week you had to get your first cavity filled (hopefully your last, but with your Mama’s teeth genetics, I’m afraid it will be never ending issues)… You were incredibly brave. Mama had to bring Dada along not for your sake but for hers.
Eloise: With your new glasses and your good friend Lucy’s new glasses, “glasses” have been the new, hip thing in your social circles. Every one wants them… even your stuffed toys.
Eloise: Deep in play with Mama made birds and peg dolls. I relish in watching these kinds of independent play sessions. You can tell stories with these little guys for hours if you want to.
” A portrait of Eloise, once a week, every week in 2017.”
Eloise: Enjoying the spring sun and flowers. My little butterfly girl!
eloise: You’ve been doing a lot of hiking with me and your friends. Fearless and always running ahead. However, we got you up some switch backs and you were very worried about looking down. “Afraid of heights Lou?” I asked her smiling. She clung to my arm and kept saying, “too high, too high!”
When those little four year old feet were back on solid ground, you were just fine and back to your silly, fierce self. But, it was so interesting seeing my fearless girl so worried about heights. I have to remember you are still only “four and a half.”
