I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of 2014! This is my 11th post in the “Our Life is Here” series blog circle. Today’s post is a series of pictures that I will never ever forget. The other day I went upstairs to check on my girls during naptime because inevitably one of them is being sneaky and trying to play when she should be sleeping. Imagine my surprise when I walked up on the scene above. 4 year old Clara Mae was sound asleep in her doorway.

She was wearing 4 princesses dresses (because 1 is never enough!) and was perched on top of her backpack stuffed with fairies.

Over the next 5 minutes, I took these photos and she never even stirred. I wish I had a video of what she had been doing prior to falling asleep in such an unusual position.

I love this sweet, girly, innocent side of my little girl. I hope she stays this way just a little while longer!

    Oh Emily – these are just precious <3 I think it's so hilarious that she could just fall sleep in the middle of the doorway!ReplyCancel

    Too funny! Kids really do the darnedest things. What great memories to have captured! :) ReplyCancel

This month’s “Our Life is Here” post is all about Alice, my just-turned 2 year old. She’s clever and funny and brave and loving and fiercely independent. I can’t believe she’s turning two today! Happy birthday Alice!

When you’re one…

…you stand at the gate to give me a kiss before I leave the house.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0549.jpg

…you know that your pouty face will get you what you want.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0556.jpg

…you savor ice cream sandwiches.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0557.jpg

…you help your sister play piano.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0558.jpg

…you saw your first concert: The Avett Brothers!

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0559.jpg

…you’re obsessed with cupcakes so much that you even like to read my cupcake cookbook.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0551.jpg

…the only TV show worth watching is Bubble Guppies. (Mommy disagrees)

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0550.jpg

…you’re cheeky.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0552.jpg

…you like to climb onto the table and play there.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0554.jpg

…you splash in puddles, even when it’s cold out.

Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_0555.jpg

…you got stitches.

But when you’re TWO, you get your favorite blueberry donut with two candles and you blow them out like a pro.

    Oh my gosh Emily, she is too precious! I can’t get over how much she’s grown in the time since we all met in BDBCE <3 Happy birthday sweet Alice!ReplyCancel

I was thrilled when I found out that my sister was having twins. Then, when we found out they were both girls….I was even more excited! Our family has all girls and it’s a blast! These babies arrived right at 38 weeks and fortunately didn’t have any complications at birth. They’re about 10 days old here and they were the *best* subjects! I might be a little biased, though!

So last month’s blog circle post was our family “selfie” celebrating 10 years of marriage. My husband and I took a belated anniversary trip to Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure in Orlando, FL a couple of weeks ago. The kids stayed with the grandparents–which was enjoyed by all! I opted not to take my big girl camera with me on this trip since it was just about us having fun and riding rides. Instead, I used my iPhone for all of these. I’m still learning how to get the most out of my camera phone, but it was so freeing not to have to lug around the fancy camera for a change!

I got to sit by the window!

And, saving the best for last…THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER!

We were able to spend a day at the Harry Potter themed Islands of Adventure park last year and it was an amazing experience! Walking in, it really feels like you’re in Hogsmeade village. This summer, they opened a new part of the park that is based on Diagon Alley. There’s even a Hogwarts Express that you can ride between the two parks. Seeing it pull into the station seriously gave me goosebumps! When we got off of the Express, we were on Platform 9 3/4 and exited onto a London street. From there, we walked through a hidden entrance to arrive in Diagon Alley. So cool! I can’t wait to take the kids there when they’re old enough to appreciate it.

Lindsey and I go way back. Waaaay back! I started babysitting her when she was 18 months old…and now she’s 18 years old. Um, that doesn’t even seem possible! It’s been fun to watch her grow up and see the beautiful woman she’s becoming. She’s fun-loving, easy to talk to and has a great sense of style! I love that she wanted to include her prom dress in her senior photos. Very Cinderella-esque! Lindsey has big dreams and I can’t wait to see where the next year takes her.
