First Birthday Pictures

Today was bittersweet :). Time goes by too fast! We went to get Lily's 1-year old pictures taken at Kiddie Kandids. They do such a good job! Lily survived three different outfits and even snuggled up to the photographer before she decided that she had had enough.
Apparently polar bears DO live on the beach. This was the last outfit and pose and Lily was not letting go of her new friend.

This first picture is actually the one we had taken of Lily when she was 5 days old. So tiny! Afther us, they took pictures of a little newborn. It brought back so many memories of my little Lily! I can't believe how much she has grown.

Outfit #1 and pretty happy. She is wearing darling shoes that my friend Bonnie custom made for her. (
Pose #2. Still pretty happy in the misty meadows.
Outfit #2 in another cute pair of shoes.
Lily loved the little bear that the photographer was using to make her smile. This time Lily grabbed it and didn't give it back :) The photographer was trying to do a tummy pose and Lily wasn't really in the mood. Johnny is holding her feet in this picture. They are kicking wildly and almost a foot up in the air :).

This year, without a doubt, has blown by faster than any other in my life. It is bittersweet.

Got your note about vacationing. Crazy coincidence -- we're staying in Lincoln City, too. The family is renting a big house -- the Neptune. If you guys are staying there, too, I'll leave you a secret note somewhere. Unfortuantely we won't cross paths -- we're leaving Sunday and heading back Saturday. Still, crazy.
