Yes, I'm turning into that mom. The mom that wraps her camera strap around her wrist, and loses all use of her right hand because shes too busy taking pictures. The mom that is constantly talking about the adorable things that her child is doing, even if nobody is listening. The mom that posts videos of her daughter "finding a dinglehopper" (seriously you should watch that, haha) in the etsy forums. The mom that lets her child do ridiculous things, that makes the other moms peek out of their windows and gossip about her behind her back. The mom that lets her daughter splash in fresh cold rain puddles until her clothes are soaked and the sun goes down. The mom that's not embarrassed to be an awesome mom.

Sounds like me! LOL, "say cheese" is like our family motto. And the more neighborhood-gossip-worthy fun, the better the pictures!!

Thanks for your encouraging words on my blog, Tia! That really meant a lot to me.
