A Girl in an Apron

So here is the deal.
Every year, close to the kids birthdays I take pictures. The boys wear their Dad's shirt.

And Princess wears my pink and brown polk dot apron.

I had this idea when I had one easy going child.
It seemed like a great way to document his growth and development through the years.

Then I had another child.
A spirited child.

And another child.
A diva.
Now I just want to get one good picture and be happy.
That is all I ask for.

Apparently that is too much to ask for from my 2 year old.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I think this idea is so cute and creative! : )

Gigi said...

wish I'd thought of this when mine was small....brilliant!

Emily said...

I have found that often I wish the simplest things from my 3 year old and always wonder why she just can deliver! ;) She's still cute and I love that idea!

Sometimes we just ask for too much from our kids. Hahaha

Sierra said...

That is a great idea! I can see how it would be easier with a...uh more relaxed child. Maybe when she is sleeping?

Here's what I've learned with photographing kids -- take what they give you and love it. I adore everyone of these pictures.

Well done.

It's my favorite chart the kids' growth ideas EVER. And the pictures make me happy.

I am in love with this idea! Too bad I can't go back in time to read this post before I had my child. (though I don't think time travel logistics actually work for what I just said). But what a b*tch your diva is!! (SO TOTALLY KIDDING! That was just for comedic effect. Don't get upset that I'm calling your darling daughter a b*tch.)

What you've captured is that child in that moment. a memory of jut how the child was that year.

Lolli said...

What an absolutely adorable idea!!

LOL! Kids just don't get how much fun it is going to be to see pictures of themselves when they were little!

I was going to do this same thing with my wedding dress. I did it twice with Reid, then I packed up the dress and put it in the rafters!!!
