Pink skies and sparkler portraits with our friends. Summertime is great!
This is so you. And I love it!
The tough life of a 5 year old.
I dragged you out of bed to head to the park so we could see the fog. It was such a great morning. We had fun watching the fog and the three dogs that came to play at the park.
See the world.
Little brother's can be fun too.
A spring portrait of you.
Yasmin had PSSAs this week and we had to wake up super early to make it in time both Monday and Tuesday. Since we had to wait for her for a few hours we decided to go get Penelope's hair cut and a bit of shopping done. Luckily it rained on the third day and daddy was home to drive Yasmin to the test, and assemble the trampoline. You guys haven’t been able to go a day without jumping in it. We were also able to take a family photo. Our first with all 5 of us in one shot.
Last portrait before your summer cut.
We’ve been meaning to cut your hair for a long time, this is to show how long your crazy curls were before the cut.
You like being called the middle sister. I guess for you, giving up your spot of “baby of the house” is not as easy as it was for Yasmin. You love your little brother in your own way, especially when he’s not crying. You’re going to get along just fine.
Oh how you love your tiny trinkets. We haven't been outdoors much even though you and your sister sometimes are able to play in the yard and we are so happy about having that space for you guys. We cannot wait until the weather is nice and we can step out more and do more things out there. We are looking forward to some gardening, and getting a trampoline for you guys to burn some energy. Counting the days until the 'real spring' ...
This has been such a huge week for you. You went from little sister to middle sister, and no longer the baby of the house. It wasn’t as easy for you accepting this role as it was for your sister when she became the big sister. You’re warming up to little brother and I’m sure you soon will be proud of your role as middle/big sister. He’s not very interesting to you right now, I totally get it, but he will find his way into your heart soon. I’m sure of it.
My little sunshine on a cloudy day. You loved playing in the snow with your big sister and you guys even attempted to build a snowman.
I'm so proud of you for sleeping through the night in your own bedroom... I could go on and complain about getting kicked every now and then when you decide to come to our bed, but the truth is, I love when you do. This will pass like everything else, phases and phases, they don't come back... I love your company and waking up next to this sweet face.
Rain rain go away, come again another day. Of course she wanted to play outside and I also wanted to take some photos outside but with this weather, nah. A 5 minute stroll in the yard was all we got and then we ran inside for some hot chocolate, popcorn and movie. Success!
You are always by your sister's side. Always admiring and trying to be like her. It's my luck that she is such a great role model for you. I'm so very proud of you both for being such amazing children. I love to see your relationship grow stronger and to see you learn from each other. I'm so very glad of the age difference and everything that makes your relationship what it is. Even if I could, I wouldn't change a thing.
Getting your nails done by your big sis is pure joy. You guys love mixing up colors, not necessarily matching.
