afternoon art.

Getting pictures of her is still very hard these days. We’ve had a lot of off days recently and a lot of dark, rainy days. But it makes it that much more special when the sun comes out and I can get a natural smile out of her, even if it was pretty hard to get. This girl loves art activities.

golden birthday.

This sweet girl of ours turned 3 on January 3rd – her golden birthday. Her personality hasn’t changed much… she’s still sweet, caring, sensitive, silly, feisty, smart, creative and just a tad sassy. She’s become a great storyteller and the best big sister. She has the biggest heart and the memory of an elephant. She loves creative activities, dancing, counting, reading, puzzles, tea parties and playing shop keeper. We’re so lucky she made us parents, and while it’s not always easy it’s certainly the best. We love her forever and ever. Happy golden birthday, Elia!

Her wild hair depicts her personality a bit. She’ll barely lets me comb it so it’s never tame ;).
