eloise: Dressed in your special sweater and your favorite bee pants, we walk down to the neighborhood park. You are usually pushing one of your babies or wooden animals in your stroller. I ask you if you want to slide? No. How about climb? No. “Swing Mama.” You say. “Squeaky? no.” You point to the swing that Mama doesn’t mind pushing you in (the others are VERY loud and squeaky). I push you. “High Mama.” You say. I push a little harder and you throw your head back into the wind and give me a happy, thankful smile.

grampas birthday

eloise: it’s getting harder to take your “portrait” these days because you are constantly moving, constantly doing and going and climbing and playing and exploring. I’m thinking my portraits will be taking a different turn from now on and I’m looking forward to capturing my almost one year old in more action shots. This shot was taken while at a park near your Gramma and Grandpa’s house. It was your Grandpa’s birthday this week and we spent a wonderful morning with him. You are enjoying all sorts of new things like the swings, climbing the climbers, swimming in a pool (for the first time this week) and sliding down a slide on your own. I’m so excited to celebrate your first birthday this weekend and see what new things you learn every day after!
