A Very Happy Birthday | Mckinny TX Child Photographer

A year ago I tool pictures of litte miss Annabella when she was just a couple of weeks old.  No one knew at the time that she had a health problem that was going to require extended stays at Children's Medical Center and ultimately a liver transplant.  I am happy to say that she is on her way to a full recovery!  Happy First Birthday little one!!!
 It wasn't planned, but when I got home to process pictures, I thought about how fitting these were, with the one red balloon, since it is a symbol of Children's Medical Center. Annabella's story was featured on a documentary about the hospital this summer. You can read more about it here.

Mom was a little worried about how the three boys would do, but they were awesome!  I loved how they lit up at the mention of their new baby sisters.  Tomorrow I get to meet the new additions.  So exciting!!!

I haven't entered in a while, but I couldn't resist this theme.  Oh how I love this little girl of mine!  She was much more interested in the grasshoppers at the pumpkin patch than in the pumpkins. :)

Wolford Elementary Vice President | Personal Post

I couldn't let too much time pass without sharing how proud I am of my oldest daughter.  We moved into a new house this summer, which meant starting 4th grade at a new school.  When she came home and told me that she planned to run for Student Council Vice President, the first thing I thought was that she should stick with class rep this year, since she still didn't know very many people.  I didn't want to discourage her, though, so instead I encouraged her to work extra hard and go the extra mile.  She is very different than I was at her age.  Outgoing and brave wasn't me at all!  Five students ran for the office of VP, but only one person started with a song.  She was so nervous that I could see her hands shaking, but she did it and did it well! 

You can see her speech HERE.

Congratulations Little Bit! We are so proud of you...and not just because you won. :)
