I was taking some pictures of Audrey today. 

She is always busy doing very important things and cant be bothered to sit still for mom to take her picture.

But I try anyway.


Its such a treat to catch her expressions.  And Audrey, like any two year old girl I am sure, seems to have a lot of them!


Mostly though, its smiles.  She is quick to share her smiles and offer you her joy. 



I hope she never loses that.


And just who on earth IS THAT??  Where is my two year old? 

She looks like a young lady already getting annoyed with her overly protective mother.

Not that I am overly protective or anything.

Ok, I totally am.


They just grow up so fast. 🙂

  1. I know… I keep thinking that mine are just so young… and then I actually look at them… and they’re not. Well, I guess the newborn is… but wasn’t my 2 yr old just a newborn and wasn’t my almost 4 yr old just 2?
