Lily helping Will make his famous sweet potato biscuits (you can see more of this day here)

i hope her love for the kitchen and for cooking will continue as she grows

“a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013”

Lily in our bedroom on valentine’s day

always talking, always imagining, always telling stories

it is during moments like these that i will hear things like:

“mommy, when i grow bigger and when you grow smaller, i’m going to be your mommy and i’m going to help you”

the sweetest she is

“a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013”

Lily in her room all dressed up, putting on shows

one of the the main reasons i decided to join Jodi with this beautiful 52 project is because at the end of the year, i do want to put a book together of all the 52 Lily portraits

believe it or not, out of the thousands of pictures i take of Lily, there is not one book (shame)

that being said, i want to make sure that each portrait represents the three year old that Lily is

dressing up and an imaginary world is a huge part of Lily’s play time/life

as i’m sure it is with most children this age
