She’s 4 & Ready To Explore!

Today, my baby (aka, “miss independent”) is officially four years old. The paradox? Our youngest turning four brings a whole new freedom in this household, but a twinge of sadness too. On the one hand, we have graduated from regularly scheduled nap times, sippy cups, training pants, and the toddler public meltdowns (well, almost). On the other hand, four means I don’t have a “baby” in the house anymore. The number three still felt like a sweet chubby cheeked toddler to me {insert my tears and her obvious annoyance with me in photo 2 here}. We had a fun day in the city with our family to celebrate the big day, which included her first train ride and a view that knocked her socks off…We love this city!

 

At home with William & Jonathon

This session was rescheduled 3 times. We had originally planned on shooting outdoors, but Chicago weather just wasn’t cooperating with us this late in the season. We finally caught a break and had a gorgeous sunny day. Unfortunately, the high temperature only reached into the mid 30’s. We decided to move indoors and I couldn’t have been happier with this yummy light! These two little guys were such good sports. Aren’t their blue eyes to die for?
