"The reason why we want to remember an image varies: Because we simply 'love it', or dislike it so intensely that it becomes compulsive, or because it has made us realize something about ourselves, or has brought about some slight change in us. Perhaps the reader can recall some image after seeing of which has never been quite the same."

Happy 5th Birthday Maddie :D

I can't believe that my baby girl is 5 years old today!  I don't know if I should be happy or sad! & every year is the same thing, that how is it that she's another year older.  It seems like just yesterday that I didn't even know if I was having another boy or if for some miracle I would have a girl!  (although I didn't admit it at the time, I knew she was a she)  Here are some oldies but goodies;
One of my favorite pics of her wearing one of my favorite little dresses with the pink flamingos :)
Peek-a-boo behind Mommy's bedroom curtain.
I just want to pinch her cheeks here...and check out the beaded necklace, showing her early sense of "style!"
And oh my gosh, full on Diva girl in this one! Yikes, if this is a sign of things to come?!
This was earlier this year, in the spring time. I had just gotten my first DSLR and what a way to celebrate than take a photo shoot of my beautiful daughter! (now she's so sick of me taking her picture, I'm afraid these shots are becoming few & far between :P)
I'll finish off with this one...One of my recent shots, her just checking out the scenery. We were at a balloon launch for the summer solstice. I like her expression here as she's deep in thought...I've often wondered what it meant to be an "Old soul." But I swear that not only was she was 18 months old & talking full sentences...she's just got that special something in her demeanour that convinces me that perhaps she might be one of those "old souls" we hear talk about!


  1. I tell you what - that little girl is going to need a body guard one day - she's just so beautiful. And that silhouette below, gorgeous.

  2. Oh my goodness, I love the last photo! :D
