Most days, my little cutie pie jumps out of bed with a burst of energy as soon as her eyes pop open. When she was still in her nursery, she would run to the door and yell for us to come get her. Now that she's in her big girl bedroom (and a comfy queen size bed instead of a toddler bed with a hard crib mattress), she takes a while to wake up. Sometimes she gets out of bed, plays for a few minutes, then climbs back in to rest.
One morning recently, recovering from a stomach bug of some sort from a couple of nights prior, she laid in bed for a half hour before I finally decided to come get her and bring her downstairs. It's rare that I'd get pictures of her still relaxing in bed, so I brought my camera up with me to capture her sweet little sleepy bed head.
When I photograph her, I often take several minutes of photos from different angles in the hopes of creating a story, but in the end I rarely find the time to edit them all and put them together. I'm so proud and thrilled that I've done this one because I just love how they turned out and captured exactly the sweet moments that I happened to catch that morning.
I needed my nieces/nephews fix and to catch up with my sister-in-law, so we met up at the local McD's Play Place for lunch. Plus, my little curly haired girl and I have been cooped up for tooooo looooong! I missed out on getting any photos of one of my beautiful nieces, but my nephew is always up for posing, and the two littlest girlies loved pressing their faces on the window of the bubble in the Play Place, which made me chuckle. Of course, when I got my daughter out of the car, her hands were nearly black from all the dirt in there, so I questioned how clean that glass really was that she was pressing her nose upon. (Ick!)

22.365 I made this tutu for your 2nd birthday party, and you detested it so much that I banished it to an unused dresser drawer. Today you found it and came running to me in excitement. We put it on over your clothes, and you played in it all day. I think Katerina Kittycat had some kind of influence over this change of heart.
25.365 With baby only 3 weeks away, Mommy and Daddy unveiled your new big girl room, and you thought it was magical. Even the view from the windows is better. We bought the cloud mobile before you were born but never hung it, and you were so excited when you saw it, yelling "Star! Star!" and singing "Twinkle twinkle little star."
