We were pursuing blossoms yesterday. My mom called to inform us that the apple trees were at their best right now, so we dropped everything, and went to see the blossoms.
It worked out perfectly, because Kaylia turned four last week, and I’ve been wanting to do a little photo shoot with her, so she did some poses for me.
I take pictures of my family all the time, but this is the first time when I’ve taken one of the girls with me on a photo spree, with a specific purpose in mind. It was so much fun, and she cooperated really well, but after a good amount of pictures, she suddenly announced, “I’m done taking pictures now, Mommy.”
Because Kaylia had a birthday, it’s her turn to share a list of favorites! (You can see last year’s list here.)
Favorite Breakfast: Pancakes
Favorite Lunch: Sandwiches
Favorite Supper: Shepherd’s Pie
Favorite Snack: Raisins
Favorite Clothes: Dresses. Any kind.
Favorite Books: Strawberry Shortcake and the Winter That Would Not End, Brambly Hedge, and Little House on the Prairie books
Favorite Toys: Polly Pockets, and anything Anika is playing with
Favorite Thing to Do: Color, pick dandelions
Oh, how we all love this sweet girl! Anika and Kaylia love each other as hard as they fight with each other, and the hugs, screams, and snuggles all flow freely between them.
She’s a feisty one, and fills our days with strong opinions, independence, hilarious comments, and sweet smiles. She skips everywhere, talks constantly, and is always dragging up a stool to help me in the kitchen.
Can’t believe she’s four already, but I wouldn’t wish her any other age!
