Adventures in Babysitting

Every now and then, I get the chance to babysit this little angel. Watching her grow up has been an absolute dream - witnessing crawling turn into little steps and developing into running around a room! I wish I could've taken more photos throughout the day, but this she can be a handful! The day started with tuna spaghetti lunch which was definitely a challenge to keep on the plate and not all over the walls! She also has this new habit of blinking whenever I pull my camera out - I guess that's her model pose!

I love this shot of her (above) though there are many faults in it from a photography point of view (composition is off, too close up, little blurry), I feel like it is the perfect snapshot of her at this point in her life - smiling, full of life, and on the move!

The day ended off with the discovery of Lucy's love for The Wizard of Oz! She was enchanted by the movie from the second I switched it on and we cozied up on the couch to watch it together (and singing along, of course!)

As much as I love photographing the big moments in her life, its fun to snap these 'everyday moments' too! She's growing up far too quickly, and I need to remember each page of the story of her life.
