my girl. she joined us five months ago and there are moments that i feel she’s always been here… her little life is such a blessing to us, to me and as i said to a friend this evening, i absolutely love her to pieces!
at five months she’s just had her first tooth cut through, which accounted for some less than pleasant nights. we’ve recently switched to cloth and that fluffy bum is just the cutest thing around! toys have become a necessity and the boys love to choose which she will play with first. she adores her brothers and is as i like to say, explosively happy. i mean, her joy penetrates the entire room and i love watching her entire face light up when she sets eyes on one of us. we have something special in this girl; our old soul, our quinny bug, our itty bitty.
five months. insane. too fast, way way way too fast.
i didn’t intend to go photo crazy this week, no special set up or cute outfit. i’d been borrowing my friend’s nikon and pulled it out when i saw the magic of the mid-morning light surrounding q. it has been a while since i’ve photographed her with anything other than my phone and my heart was just so happy. it felt good and natural and, just like home.
i need to do this more often, set the phone aside and capture my littles with the big camera. so, here we are, quinny-pie the precious, at five months old.
what is it about seven? it nearly catches my breath in my throat to even say it. seven. not a toddling little boy, yet still so far from the teenager he seems to want to be. i thought his personality had been really pushing through a few years ago but something about the phase in his life right now… i feel as though i’m just now, really seeing the boy he’ll be as he grows.
he’s not a fan of pictures but every so often he’ll humor me. i treasure them now, so much more as they’re few and far between. my first born, the one who made me a mama what feels like an eternity ago, my mini me. my danny boy.
my quinny-pie. just a few days shy of five months (say what?!?) and she’s gotten herself on film. the scans just came in and though i’m not physically touching the prints yet, i can feel their depth. i can smell her sweet hair, and hear her tiny giggle.
a bit of portra, a bit of ilford.
fun blog changes coming soon.
