Guess Who is ALMOST ONE?!

This morning we went for Hope's birthday pictures. She has not been a big fan of photo sessions in the past, but she did pretty well today, aside from her *ahem* falling off of this stool while I tried all kinds of crazy antics to make her smile! :) I wanted to wait until her birthday to share, but we will have lots of pictures of that day to share, and I am not so good at waiting. SO here you go! :) Thank you so much to Katie Mihalak for your beautiful work! (If you are in the area and are in need of a photographer, I HIGHLY recommend her, her work is awesome, her prices are reasonable, she is great with kids and she takes the anxiety out of photo sessions!)


Snuggling her Baby Be Blessed "Hope" Doll we won a couple of "Free Friday's" ago

With Birthday Lamby! Can you believe she used to be smaller than her?

(This is my personal favorite) Shows her true colors! :)

I have been dying to get a photo done with this cute diaper cover from a sweet blog reader. It FINALLY fits her! I love it! :)

Gorgeous pictures, Kristy...

Just blesses my heart to think of how God's hand has been on your sweet Hope.

He has carried all of you so beautifully...and I am privileged to be among those allowed to watch Him work in your lives.

Love to you...

Oh my goodness...those two top pictures are stunning! Your photographer did an amazing job!

It helps to have such a beautiful, photogenic subject :)

I can't believe how fast a year can go. Unbelievable, huh?

Enjoy your little ones. My "baby" graduates high school Friday. Seems like just yesterday I was getting her one year portraits made.
