19 months ago I started taking one photo a week of our girls and documenting them on the blog once a month. It is a way to track growth, remember hairstyles, outfits, bruises and bad moods. But mostly it is one of my favorite ways to watch them grow. Even if it sometimes breaks my heart.
This years challenge has gone so much better than my first year. I have been editing my photos and keeping them neatly organized. I am feeling pretty confident the extra work will really pay off at the end of the year. At least I hope so.
Here is a look at weeks 27-31
The day before the Fourth of July and it was spitting rain. I somehow convinced them to stand on the porch and pose for a quick photo. After all they did look so cute in their patriotic best :). I’d also like to mention they spent all weekend going back and forth over whose turn it was to wear the patriotic earrings. Clearly we need another pair #andsoitbegins.
Everything was wet from all of the rain. I mean it is mid July here and look at our grass! Our lawn has never looked so good and in return we have to mow it like every 3 days. I love the print on Marissa’s dress but I think this will be the last time it is a dress. That poor kid outgrows all of her dresses length wise WAY too fast.
This was the week I was on mom-cation with Anna. I knew I needed to make-up our photo when I got back home, so I challenged the girls to pick out an outfit they love. Emily insisted that in the spirit of her shirt we leave her hair in its natural, crazy state.
Another week and two more pretty dresses on two pretty little girls. I was just talking to a friend (hi Stephanie) about how I always wanted a little boy. I never in a million years would have imagined myself a girl mom. But it is so good friends. God knew just what I needed.
The clothes were flying this week because Marissa couldn’t find anything that she wanted to wear. Ten minutes later she proudly exclaimed how much she loved the outfit she chose. Drama, drama! I also trimmed about an inch of Em’s hair since she has been BEGGING me for a hair cut. You can’t really tell in these photos though.
Year number two of weekly photos is more than half way done!
Just for fun let’s take a look back at July of 2016.
I think two things. On the shallow side I think “Man I really should have edited my photos”. But on the serious side I think “Goodness gracious little girls, slow down”.
But they just keep growing up.Sharing this months #PicturePerfectProject photos and the outfits they thought were super cool. #sillygirls Click To Tweet
Now it’s your turn to link up what you have been taking photos of.
