She's three...

My baby is gone.

How did this happen? One minute you are flying across the country to meet your child for the first time, and the next... she's three.

She's beautiful, spunky, independent and bossy. She's demanding and sweet, spicy and bold. She's a daddy's girl and a mommy's shadow. 

And we love her very much.

One of my favorite Belle things is how when she wants something really, really bad, she claps her hands furiously above her head until she gets it. She doesn't know it's even happening.  I also love her laugh and her voice- both so low and a tad raspy.  She's recently lost all ability to control her voice's volume, which is hysterical.

Most of all I love her vibrant spirit- she's a tiny ball of energy locked inside the most beautiful little body I've ever seen.

Tyler set out to take some images of Isabelle that reflect her true personality. I think he did just that. They are playful, colorful, vibrant, yet commanding and dramatic, just like our Belle. These pictures make me grin from ear to ear- and ok FINE, maybe there's a tear here and there...

Have I ever writeen a post so blatantly cheesy? I doubt it.

Happy Birthday Bellie!

She has the best run... so clumsy yet fast!

I especially love this one above, because it amazes me how much like one of last year's pictures it turned out. Except a different parent took each one.  Go here and see the last pic to see what I'm talking about.

I''m loving the big forehead series that Tyler does. I think every family deserves one!
