Sick AND Tired

I have officially crossed cold AND flu off my Winter To Do list! I am over all this sickiness! (as Ashton would say)
I scanned through my blog list yesterday and passed out from exhaustion! I know you've all been missing me and have been worried sick about where I have been! Right?
Tomorrow is a full day of soccer, so my goal is to visit all my bloggy friends on Sunday!

It's that time of year, and today I attempted to get some Valentine pictures of Miss Daisy. Same story, different day!

I tried to get her to sit on her rocking horse. She gave me a piece of her mind. It was not a cooperative piece! Maybe she doesn't like it when I make her wear a name-tag on her forehead?

I asked her to sit in the rocking chair and have a little tea party. She DID enjoy some tea but she DID NOT sit still!

I got a lot of shots that look like this!

Then she refused to stay in front of my hi-tech photo back-drop (a black sheet draped over her crib)

And finally, SHE HAD HAD ENOUGH!

She yelled and pointed an angry finger at me. And finished by telling me what I could do with that tea cup!

Love these pictures......the "real" stuff. You'll look back and be glad they're exactly as they are!

Precious girl.

Ugh, I'm sorry you're sick!

Rachel said...

LOL... that girl cracks me up! Most of my photos are of Itty Bit's backside. His future wife will be highly impressed with his childhood years scrapbook (oh wait... I actually have to make one of those).

Sooo funny with the narrative - I love her expressions, even when she isn't interested in picture taking.

And I agree with the first comment, you will always cherish them because she's only little once!

Hope you feel better soon!

Glad you're feeling better and won't have to worry about getting sick again since that is crossed off your to do list.

These pictures are cute, even though they may not have turned out how you wanted them to. I was very impressed with your high tech backdrop.

Adorable pictures! I can totally relate to this post! Most of our early shoots looked just like this. I can now just finally laugh about it!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I'm so sorry you've been sick. I hope you officially on the mend!

LOL at those pics of Daisy. She cracks me up.

Brandi said...

Oh, Daisy is too funny! Throwing the cup... OMW!!! Cracking up. ;)

Sorry to hear you've been sick. I was missing you, but I haven't been around all that much either. I hope you feel better soon. :)

Some of these will probably end up as some of your favorite pictures as you will remember this moment :)
